Developing Student Autonomy in Learning.
Boud, David, Ed.
A collection of essays examines ways in which teachers in higher education can enable students to become more autonomous in their learning: that is, how students can learn without the constant presence or intervention of a teacher. The introduction by David Boud discusses the trend in education towards a more autonomous learner, and provides an overview of the book's structure. Part I provides a general orientation toward the issues discussed in detail in later chapters. Chapters in Part I include: "Toward Student Responsibility for Learning" (David Boud); "Changing Basic Assumptions about Teaching and Learning" (M. L. J. Abercrombie); and "Assessment Revisited" (John Heron). Part II (Case Studies) includes: "Reducing Teacher Control" (J. P. Powell); "Independent Study: A Matter of Confidence" (Harry Stanton); "One-To-One Learning" (David Potts); "Parrainage: Students Helping Each Other" (Marcel Goldschmid); "Student Autonomy in Learning Medicine: Some Participants' Experiences" (Barbara Ferrier, Michael Marrin, and Jeffrey Seidman); "Preparing for Contract Learning" (Mary Buzzell and Olga Roman); "Student Planned Learning" (John Stephenson); and "A Decade of Student Autonomy in a Design School" (Barrie Shelton); Part III (Reflections) offers: "Putting into Practice: Promoting Independent Learning in a Traditional Institution" (Malcolm Cornwall) and "Moving Towards Independent Learning" (J. P. Powell). References and an index are provided. (LC)
