Introduction

Welcome to Promoting Student Autonomy in the Classroom!

An autonomous classroom is one in which students are largely responsible for all the decisions concerned with their learning and the implementation of those decisions. Therefore, promoting student autonomy in the classroom can help increase student engagement and learning. Watch the video below about creating an autonomous environment.

Course Overview

Photo-1521321205814-9d673c65c167.jpeg

By the end of this course participants will be able to answer the following questions:

  • What are my strengths and weaknesses regarding student autonomy?
  • What are the benefits of a student autonomous classroom?
  • How much assistance do I need to give to students?
  • How can I construct a unit promoting student autonomy in the classroom?
  • How can I evaluate my unit?
  • How can I revise my unit?


The goal for this course is to guide and support participants in creating assignments centered on having students work in an autonomous setting.

This course is organized into three units with two lessons each. As you work through the course, you will be asked to:

  • Identify their strengths and weaknesses regarding student autonomy.
  • Summarize the data on the benefits of a student autonomous classroom
  • Analyze how much assistance to give to students given a checklist about their students’ abilities and skills.
  • Construct a unit promoting student autonomy in the classroom.
  • Evaluate your unit.
  • Revise your unit.


You will also be asked to track your learning using a scale. This is a shared Google Doc among participants that can be edited. Creating a copy for yourself would be the best option so that the scale remains readable by all.
