Manzano Vázquez, Borja – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2018
The development of autonomy is acknowledged as a prominent educational goal in discussions of language education, but it is hardly a reality in many schools.

White, Cynthia; Pham, Cuong – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
While time and context have been found to have both synergistic and cumulative effects on language learners' cognitive and socio-affective development, time itself remains under-conceptualised in those processes. Drawing on the Bakhtinian construct of chronotope Bakhtin [(1981). "The Dialogic Imagination: Four Essays". Translated by…

Oxford, Rebecca L. – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
Time factors complexly, dynamically interact with each other and with other contextualized variables in language learning. The time-tied nature of language learning is captured in what I call the "time-prism," which is the central symbol of temporality in this paper. The facets of the prism discussed in this article are (1) language…

Lewis, Tim – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2013
This paper explores what it means to be an autonomous learner in an online social context. Using distinctions originally drawn by Jürgen Habermas, it argues that classic accounts of learner autonomy as teleological action are inadequate to explain learner activity in group settings. It points out that learners in such settings display attitudes…

This study aims to explore the factors involved in self-regulated…

Gao, Xuesong – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2013
As the construct of agency has generated considerable discussion among language educators recently and has become a buzz word, there is a need for it to be further conceptualized and operationalized in autonomy research. Drawing on Margaret Archer's theorization of "internal conversation," this paper theorizes language learners' agency…

Research on the L2 Motivational Self System has drawn considerable attention in Second Language Acquisition. Previous studies have discussed the system itself, its basic concepts and their relationships to such affective variables as anxiety in various L2 learning contexts. The findings of these studies suggest that (1) having a clearer image of…
