These are the slides for the IATEFL Learning Technologies Special Interest Group webinar on 15.09.13.

Abstract: Most of us have to, at some point, use ICT or web tools as part of our practice, but how autonomous are we when it comes to learning those tools? To what extent do we teach ourselves and to what extent do we learn from others? What training do we expect, if any? How can we create our own autonomy? This webinar is intended to build on research carried out for a master’s dissertation. Hopefully, it will also provide an up-to-date snapshot of current practice and you will be invited to participate in adding to this research for possible further publication.
