At the heart of this study is the fostering of learner autonomy in the language classroom, in particular how learner autonomy can be developed through pedagogical tasks. The work focuses on four different approaches: learner-related, classroom-related, resource-related and technology-related.
Developing Learner Autonomy through Tasks combines classroom theory, research and practice, all of which are immersed in the philosophy of social constructivism, whereby knowledge and learning are seen as both the context for and the result of human interaction.
"This is the book everyone in the field has been waiting for. It is the product of excellent classroom research. . . highly engaging, relevant, readable, and above all, practical in its handling of the issues."
Prof. John McRae, University of Nottingham, UK
