Abstract:

In this volume researchers from Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North and
South America employ a variety of theoretical perspectives and methodological
approaches in their exploration of the links between identity, motivation, and
autonomy in language learning. On a conceptual level the authors explore
issues related to agency, metacognition, imagination, beliefs, and self. The
book also addresses practice in classroom, self-access, and distance education
contexts, considering topics such as teachers' views on motivation, plurilingual
learning, sustaining motivation in distance education, pop culture and gaming,
study abroad, and the role of agency and identity in the motivation of pre-service
teachers. The book concludes with a discussion of how an approach which sees
identity, motivation, and autonomy as interrelated constructs has the potential to
inform theory, practice and future research directions in the field of language
teaching and learning.

501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These

administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
