About this ebook

This volume is the result of the two-day conference on language learner autonomy, “The answer is autonomy: issues in language teaching and learning”, which was held in Graz, Austria in June 2012. Through its 19 chapters including a foreword by Ema Ushioda, the book explores themes such as the role of technology in autonomous learning environments; language learner autonomy and its demands on the teacher; language learner autonomy and the power of beliefs; new perspectives on (peer) evaluation and assessment, and the role of the institution in everyday classroom practice.

Since its original release, this volume has been considered to have made a notable contribution to the field of learner autonomy. Although undoubtedly there have been many changes in circumstances, ideas, and programmes since the original publication of this book in 2013, it has been republished it ‘intact’ in order to offer a true account of the field at the time of the Graz event.

The conference was jointly organised by the IATEFL Learner Autonomy Special Interest Group (LASIG) and treffpunkt sprachen - Centre for Language, Plurilingualism and Didactics located at the Karl-Franzens University of Graz, Austria. The four plenary sessions were delivered by internationally-acclaimed researchers and practitioners in the field of language learner autonomy: David Little, Trinity College, Dublin; Leni Dam, LASIG Coordinator, Denmark; Lienhard Legenhausen, University of Münster, Germany and Ema Ushioda, University of Warwick, UK.
