Abstract
This paper reports on a recent trial of Autonomous Language Learning (ALL) guides, at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology (CPIT), in Christchurch and Unitec Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand. The guides were developed to meet a perceived need for autonomous learning support in both the language classroom and the Self-Access Centre (SAC). The aim was to investigate whether these guides were effective in fostering autonomy and enhancing learning for students during their out-of-class time. Furthermore, it evaluated how they were being used, what learning was taking place, and if they fulfilled the need for support that teachers and students may require.
