Eric M. Skier: Lessons from MAYA - Practical ideas for introducing, implementing, and sustaining autonomy in language classrooms
In this presentation, participants had the opportunity to learn about practical ways of introducing student-centered teaching practices into their own classrooms. MAYA, More Autonomy you Ask! (2006) was published by the Learner Development SIG of JALT and the presenter, one of the co-editors, shared lessons and ideas from the anthology. Even with a stress on the practical, the research findings to support the justification of a student-centered teaching approach were also shared.
