Conference on Teaching English as a Foreign Language


"Questioning What's Best to Work: Implementing Pedagogic Innovation for Creating Teacher and Learner Autonomy in TEFL"

16-17 May, 2015




Indonesian government is fast approaching some global targets few years later, which certainly will also require educators to work much harder. The idea of ‘not everything can be taught in classes, nonetheless, defines the utmost essence of teaching as ‘teaching students how to be teachers for themselves’. English teachers have got two reasonable grounds to promote autonomous learning. Firstly, language is too complex and varied for edifying students’ skills within a constrained time. Secondly, most students spend greater hours in a day outside the schools. Hence, to compensate for the limits of classroom time and to counter students’ passivity during the teaching-learning process, it becomes crucial for teachers to implement pedagogic innovation to facilitate students finding their own learning strategies.
