What Autonomy Is Not

 What Autonomy is not

What Autonomy is not, (according to David Little)

First – it is not self-instruction or learning without a teacher

Second – it does not forbid intervention or initiative on the part of the teacher

Third – it is not something that teachers DO to learners, i.e., it is not a new method

Fourth – it is not one single easily identifiable behaviour

Fifth – it is not a steady state achieved by learners once and for all
