Title: Learner and Teacher Autonomy
Subtitle: Concepts, realities, and responses
Edited By: Terry Lamb
Hayo Reinders
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AALS%201
Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 1
Description:

This edited volume offers a cohesive account of recent developments across
the world in the field of learner and teacher autonomy in languages
education. Drawing on the work of eminent researchers of language learning
and teaching, it explores at both conceptual and practical levels issues
related to current pedagogical developments in a wide range of contexts.
Global shifts have led to an increase in autonomous and independent
learning both in policy and practice (including self-access and distance
learning). The book’s scope and focus will therefore be beneficial to
language teachers as well as to students and researchers in applied
linguistics and those involved in pre- and in-service teacher education.
The book concludes with an overview of the state of research in this field,
focusing on the (inter)relationships between the concepts of learner and
teacher autonomy.
