Sun, Nov 22, 14:35-15:00 JST

This presentation explores Japanese university students’ digital spaces and identity formation in the context of the sudden move to Emergency Remote Teaching and Learning (ERTL) implemented as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. An online questionnaire was administered to first-year students at a national university in Japan, and the results show the importance of institutional and social support in the learning ecology of students, as learning is not only about the transmission of information.
