This workshop is focused on three aspects of self-directed learning: learning management; resources; and learning strategies. There were discussion on setting goals and planning own learning; selecting effective resources and activities that are in line with the goals; and using a range of effective learning strategies to increase students’ learning potential.
The overall aim of the workshop is to give students a better understanding of how to self-direct their language learning so that they can become more effective, autonomous language learners. Students will receive handouts with key ideas and online links for learning resources.
