#KELTchat Slowburn – Promoting Learner Autonomy: Stories, Sites, Sources, and Strategies (Tuesday, June 10th 10 am-10 pm)

KELTCHAT SLOWBURN (™) Last chat one of the semester
One day only!

We all know that promoting learner autonomy is A GOOD THING and is something we *should* be doing. From there it might get a bit more hazy. Maybe for some, a variety of questions spring up. Some of these that might help guide the chat are:

  • What can we do to promote learner autonomy?
  • What would you say to a teacher who says promoting learner autonomy is not their job?
  • What strategies do you recommend for introducing and sustaining learner autonomy?
  • How can we help students to see their English as a lifelong project, rather than as preparation for a series of tests?
  • What websites or digital tools would you recommend?
  • Are there any blog posts or articles related to this topic you can recommend?
  • Do you have any stories related to challenges and successes you have had with this you’d like to share 140 characters at a time?
  • Does the Korean context figure into all this? How?
  • Do you have any questions about learner autonomy?

We will try to tackle all of this, and more, between the hours of 10 am and 10 pm Korea time on Tuesday, 10th June 2014. If you would like to take part but don’t know how, see the guides at the top of the page, or ask someone who looks like they know what’s up via Twitter or our Facebook group.
