Teachers as Self-Directed Learning Guides
This forum features several short presentations on self-directed learning. The presenters will cover a range of topics related to their teaching practices, including their use of language learner histories; learner journals; online and face-to-face interactive tasks; negotiated goal contracts; and reflective tasks. They will also introduce measures they employ to facilitate open dialogue and create a professional teaching community. Finally, participants will be invited to share how they address learner autonomy in different contexts.
