Fostering Learner Autonomy
Through Curriculum Design Dependent
in a
Teacher Centered Classroom Autonomous
Learners in a
Student Centered
Classroom Cooperative learning is where teams of students, with various abilities and skills, work together on different activities to learn about a subject. Cooperative Learning Students judge their own work to improve performance
Students identify discrepancies between current and desired performance Self Assessment Choice How can we modify our curriculum to create a more student centered classroom which fosters learner autonomy?

Cooperative Learning Activities
Self Assessment & Reflection
Choice Five Important Components of Cooperative Learning Positive
How do you achieve positive
Establish mutual goals
Come up with rewards for everyone
Share materials and information
Assign roles Positive interdependence means you
need each other to complete your task Facilitator
Materials Monitor
Scribe Face-To-Face
Interaction By sitting in small groups, facing one
another, students are able to: You get to talk in class! Look at the speaker (eye-contact)
Think about what others are saying Individual Accountability Everyone must learn the
information, so everyone can
contribute to the project
Group grades and
individual grades
Everyone has
a job to do Interpersonal & Group Skills Think about a time you worked in a group and the group was successful in accomplishing a given task. What types of behaviors were necessary in order to work collaboratively
& achieve
the task? Communication
Active Listening
Respect each other’s opinion
Celebrate and use individual differences to benefit the group Group Process What procedures are working well– what
needs to change?
What has the group learned?
What has the group accomplished?
What would the group/group members do
differently next time?
How would the group grade itself?
Each other? Groups need time to
think and reflect! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Planning for Cooperative Learning 1. Select a learning objective & lesson
2. Design groups
3. Arrange the classroom
4. Provide the appropriate materials
5. Explain the task & structure
6. Teacher group-monitoring Small Groups 2-4 students grouped together according to... 1. Ability: heterogeneous vs. homogenous (language proficiency, readiness for material, etc.)
2. Interests
3. Learning styles
4. Randomly Think-Pair-Share By incorporating cooperative learning into your lesson plans, are you helping to foster learner autonomy?

List three specific characteristics or components of cooperative learning that support the development of autonomous learners. Reflection is one form of self-assessment
Reflective thinking is part of the critical thinking process
It refers to the processes of analyzing and making judgements about what has happened In order to evaluate their own work, students must understand by what standards their work will be judged. Students & teachers can create standards and criterion together with: Self-Assessment Student friendly rubrics
Student-friendly checklists Reflection Students should be prompted to reflect before, during or after learning.
Reflection can take the form of: reflection logs
weekly self-evaluations
teacher-student conferences
whole or small group discussions
inventories •What did I learn today?
•What did I do well?
•What am I confused about?
•What do I need help with?
•What do I want to know more
•What am I going to
work on next? Research has shown that motivation is related to whether or not students have opportunities to be autonomous and to make important academic choices. Having choices allows students to feel that they have control or ownership over their own learning. This, in turn, helps them develop a sense of responsibility and self-motivation. When students feel a sense of ownership, they want to engage in academic tasks and persist in learning (McCombs, 2013). http://www.apa.org/education/k12/learners.aspx Teachers can provide choice in the following areas: 1. Sources/Materials
2. Processes/Activities
3. Products/Ways to show learning "When students understand their role as agent (the one in charge) over their feeling, thinking, and learning behaviors, they are more likely to take responsibility for their learning" (McCombs, 2013). Reflection Christen Brady
