Module overview

This course explores the themes of learner autonomy, resourced-based and open and distance learning and their practical outworking in an institutional context. You will be encouraged to think through ways of facilitating learning and in particular to consider the role of a self-access resources centre in the language learning process, including the place of technology. There will be plenty of opportunity to observe and work with learners using the Centre for Language Study (CLS) Language Resources Centre. Apart from the theoretical base which underpins the concept of learner autonomy, the topics covered, and their precise focus, will be selected in consultation with the course participants and the final programme will be drawn up after the first meeting.
