Self-Access for Self-Directed Learning.
Benson, Philip
Hongkong Papers in Linguistics and Language Teaching, v15 p31-38 1992
The relationship between self-directed learning and self-access is discussed as a system of organizing resources. The first part of the paper outlines the skills needed for self-directed learning in a self-access center. The skills include defining objectives, identifying resources, selecting resources, using resources, evaluating action, and redefining objectives. The second part describes how self-access resources at The University of Hong Kong Language Centre have been reorganized to help develop these skills. The reorganization includes the use of a personal computer database to help students plan programs of study. One of the findings of the project has been that little is really known about the motive and decision-making processes of learners in self-access situations. Contains 8 references. (LB)
