About the talk

Redefining teacher and student roles is understood as a key principle of autonomous learning. This talk describes practical attempts to enhance an English language course with situations when students teach and teachers learn. It suggests that opening the teaching perspective to students, as well as to teachers being earnestly interested in learning from them, is crucial in a truly autonomous environment.
