    • What?
      • 'Autonomy is the ability to take charge of one's own learning'
      • (Holec, 1979).
      • 'Autonomy is a capacity – for detachment, critical reflection, decision-making, and independent action
      • (Little, 1990).
      • 'Autonomy is a situation in which the learner is totally responsible for all the decisions concerned with his/her learning and the implementation of those decisions'
      • (Dickinson,1993).
      • ' A utonomy is characterized by a readiness to take charge of one’s own learning in the service of one’s needs and purposes.
      • (Dam 1995:1)

    • How?
      • situations in which learners study entirely on their own;
      • a set of skills which can be learned and applied in self-directed learning;
      • an inborn capacity which is suppressed by institutional education;
      • the exercise of learners’ responsibility for their own learning;
      • for the right of learners to determine the direction of their own learning
    • How?
      • Encourage students to be interdependent and to work collectively.
      • Ask students to keep a diary of their learning experiences.
      • Explain teacher/student roles from the outset.
      • Progress gradually from interdependence to independence.
      • Give the students projects to do outside the classroom.
      • Give the students non-lesson classroom duties to perform (taking roll, writing instructions, notices, etc. on the board for the teacher)
      • “ Think of something you are good at I bet you … learnt it by self assessment”
      • http:// www.geoffpetty.com/selfassess.html
    • Self assess
      • * set his/her learning goals, identify and develop learning strategies to achieve such goals
      • * develop study plans
      • * reflect on his/her learning which includes identifying problem areas and means of addressing these problems
      • * identify and selects relevant resources and the necessary support
      • * assess his/her own progress and define his/her own criteria for evaluating performance and learning (including strategies, materials, etc)
      • Chan (2001 )
    • Disadvantages?
      • Possible issues
      • Validity of student assessment (address this by providing clear learning objectives and marking criteria; have more than one assessor for each piece of work; build in teacher moderation).
      • Debate about whether peer assessment should be used for formative assessment only, or can be used summatively.
      • Students may allow friendships, rivalry etc, to affect their objectivity.
      • Involving students in assessment practices may increase an obsession with grades.
