Students Learning Potential and Autonomy: James Fenton

This clip analyses the research undertaken across a few universities including DMU on the concept of student autonomy in learning.  The concepts are applied to EFL teaching with emphasis on the pre-sessional course which led onto full time university courses.  Findings identified the importance of students taking responsibility of their own learning in terms of taking control and contribution, but not alone. The students needed the interaction with tutors and peers in the process of learning. It also emphasises the development of critical reflection in independent learning.
