PAM: How do you think the students would feel about that,Jun?
JUN: Well,the library is big enough to incorporate the Self-Access Centre,but it wouldn't be like a class activity anymore.Our main worry would be not being able to go to a teacher for advice.I'm sure there would be plenty of things to do but we really need teachers to help us choose the best activities.
PAM: Well,there would still be a teacher present and he or she would guide the activities of the students,we wouldn't just leave them to get on with it.
JUN: Yes,but I think the students would be much happier keeping the existing set-up;they really like going to hte Self-Access Centre with their teacher and staying together as a group to do activities.If we could just improve the resources and facilities,I think it would be fine.Is the cost going to be a problem?
PAM: It's not so much the expense that I'm worried about,and we've certainly got room to do it,but it's the problem of timetabling a teacher to be in there outside class hours.If we're going to spend a lot of money on equipment and resources,we really need to make sure that everything is looked after properly.Anyway,let's make some notes to see just what needs doing to improve the Centre.
