Learner Autonomy Principles
“Active learners taking initiative learn more things and learn betterthan do people who sit at the feet of their teachers.” – Knowles“Autonomy is essentially a matter of the learner's psychologicalrelation to the process and content of learning--a capacity fordetachment, critical reflection, decision-making, and independentaction” – Little“The autonomous learner is a self-activated maker of meaning, anactive agent in his own learning process. Learning is seen as theresult of his own self-initiated interaction with the world.” – Rathbone“Autonomy is a situation in which the learner is totally responsible forall the decisions concerned with his/her learning and theimplementation of those decisions” – Dickinson
