The theme for our conference is “Autonomy in a Networked World: Te T? Motuhake i te Ao K?tuitui”.  The programme will be developed around the following sub-themes:

  1. Framing learner autonomy in today’s world – where we are now and where we are going…
  2. Autonomy and identity
  3. Autonomy and agency (motivation and strategies)
  4. Autonomy and learning environment (classroom, distance, technology-supported, language learning centres, etc.)
  5. Autonomy and assessment

We welcome abstracts for pre-conference Workshops, papers, thematic colloquia, the interactive independent learning fair, and posters.
