Together with IATEFL / LASIG, the Applied Linguistics-Didactics Section of the Dept. of Anglophone Studies at the University of Duisburg-Essen will host a one-day conference on autonomy in language learning.


Reforming the foreign language classroom – empowering students to take ownership

23 November 2018


Call for Papers/ Posters:

April 1st – June 15th, 2018 (Expired)


We would like you to join us for our kick-off event on how to reform language learning and teaching for the 21st century. The focus of our one-day LASIG event will be on learning languages in school settings that already provide learners with some responsibility for their learning, e.g. in the so-called alternative schools or in networks of schools that are concerned with shaping their learning environments for the future. However, we would also like to hear the voices of those who have have taken their own individual little steps towards supporting Learner Autonomy.
