Subject: Applied Ling/TESOL:Teaching & Researching Autonomy in Language Learning

Phil Benson, the English Centre, University of Hong Kong Autonomy, or
the ability of learners to control their own learning, has become a
key concept in language education, influencing activities as diverse
as self-access, distance learning, computer-assisted language
learning, learner training, classroom practice and curriculum design.

Teaching and Researching Autonomy in Language Learning is the first
volume to offer a comprehensive account of autonomy in language
learning, and the educational practices associated with the
concept. The book:

* details the history and sources of the concept of autonomy
* discusses areas of debate concerning its definition
* reviews research on theoretical and practical applications
* offers clear guidelines to educators on the evidence for the effectiveness
 of practices associated with autonomy

The final chapter offers suggestions of issues for investigation,
advice on action research design and a listing of relevant internet
resources. This chapter can also be found on the Teaching and
Researching Autonomy in Language Learning companion web-site:
