This year the Learner Development SIG is aiming to support current SIG members by offering research grants, PAN-SIG and JALT National conference grants as well as the SIG's 20th anniversary conference. Also, in order to reach out to potential new members in under-represented areas of the SIG, we are offering free LD SIG memberships / subscriptions.
