Learning Paths is specifically devoted to research and action for promoting learner autonomy. The focus is mainly, but not exclusively, on second language learning, with ample opportunities for cross-curricular work.
I believe that learner autonomy is an on-going process of self-discovery, in which both teachers and learners are invited to express and share their thoughts and feelings about what they are learning and how they are learning it.
Learning Paths aims to help this process of self-discovery by providing materials and references, suggestions for individual and class tasks and ready-to-use tools for investigating various aspects of the teaching/learning interface.
