Autonomy and Motivation: A Literature Review.
Dickinson, Leslie
System, v23 n2 p165-74 May 1995
A common theme in justifications for autonomy in language learning is that autonomous learners become more highly motivated and work more effectively. This paper reviews the literature on motivation and suggests that an important link exists between autonomy and some theories of motivation that could explain the claimed power of autonomy.
