Palgrave Macmillan, 2007 - Education - 264 pages
Reconstructing Autonomy in Language Education: Inquiry and Innovation provides a critical re-interpretation of the contextual co-construction of autonomy in language education. Fifteen grounded research projects explore innovative self-reflexive approaches to autonomy in learner and teacher education, classroom practice, self-access and materials development. The book emphasizes the multi-voiced and contradictory complexity of pursuing autonomy in language education and includes commentary chapters to help readers engage with key issues emerging from the research.
