LASIG: Language learner autonomy and inclusion at the secondary level

Join IATEFL Learner Autonomy SIG and Leni Dam for this workshop.

In this interactive workshop we will look together at principles and features of an autonomous learning environment which support inclusion of students with special needs. The features discussed will include the role of teacher and students, the use of a logbook, and possible activity types including ideas for evaluating process and products. We will also consider the challenges that arise due to Coronavirus.

Leni Dam, former LASIG Coordinator and Joint Coordinator for six years together with Lienhard Legenhausen, was for 40 years a teacher in a Danish comprehensive school developing language learner autonomy in her English classes. At the same time, she was an in-service teacher trainer and school developer at University College for Copenhagen and North Zealand. She has published widely, two examples of which are Learner Autonomy: From Theory to Practice, 1995, and Language learner Autonomy: Theory, Practice, and Research, 2017, together with David Little and Lienhard Legenhausen. She is now freelance, running courses and workshops, and giving talks on issues connected to language learner autonomy
