Language Learning Theories Underlying Learner Autonomy

    Dear TESOLers,
    I am doing a research on learner autonomy. I am interested in the language learning theories underlying it. I have searched online, but I could not find relevant information. Could you please help me with some reading about this? (Links, or PDFs). Thank you so much.

    Hi,
    The learning theories that support learner autonomy are constructivist theory and connectivity theory. You can search for vygotsky's theory and Siemen's theory in the web. While constructivist theory talks about the way students formulate their own understanding of concepts, Connectivism deals with the exposure to be provided for students to relate ideas presented.

    The present methods of teaching like Communicative Language Teaching are not effective for the present world context any further.
