Empowering the digital language learner

Research has demonstrated increased engagement when learners are in control of their learning. We explore strategies which practitioners can employ in order to empower learners on blended digital language programmes to become more autonomous. We’ll identify some of the barriers and possible solutions to creating an environment that puts the learner at the centre of the learning experience, and explores whether lessons learned in the classroom can be applied to the digital world.
