Learner autonomy

Watch a recording of this webinar with Lizzie Pinard, looking at learner autonomy and practical methods that we can use to encourage our learners to move towards being genuinely autonomous outside the classroom.

About the talk

Autonomy is undoubtedly an ELT buzz-phrase – many of like to say that we are aiming to foster it in our learners but how do we make the step from telling learners it’s a good idea to actually helping them become autonomous? This webinar considers a range of ways to bridge the chasm between the classroom and the valuable learning opportunities beyond it.
