Teacher Autonomy on English Communication Courses in Japanese Universities
Marshall, Paul Anthony
International Journal of Curriculum and Instruction, v11 n2 p87-99 2019
This study aimed to examine university English Communication teachers' self-reports of teacher autonomy in terms of their own freedom to make decisions about the teaching and learning that occurs inside their classroom. Results showed that teacher self-perceptions of both general and curricular autonomy were high. There was some recognition that although autonomy allows teachers to adapt to student needs, standards cannot be monitored and maintained without a certain level of top-down co-ordination.
