The present volume brings together papers devoted to the role of learner and teacher autonomy in the process of second and foreign language learning, which have been contributed by scholars from Poland and abroad. The book has been divided into three parts in accordance with the topics that the individual contributions touch upon. The first part includes papers dealing with different ways in which learner autonomy can be fostered and evaluated. The papers contained in Part Two are connected with the role of language learning strategies in the development of learner independence. Finally, Chapter Three focuses on developing teacher autonomy, which, in the opinion of many specialists, is indispensable if learner autonomy is to be promoted. Thanks to its wide-ranging focus, this edited collection will be of interest not only to second language learning specialists interested in the role of learner autonomy, but also to undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students working on their BA, MA and PhD theses, as well as practitioners wishing to promote learner independence in their classrooms.

This book explores the particular challenges of teaching and learning science at a distance. It discusses the principles of instructional design, informed by studies of the ways in which conceptual and process-based skills are developed by science learners, and suggests how structural issues in the selection of course content may be addressed. Focusing mainly on examples drawn from undergraduate teaching, successive chapters illustrate a wide range of instructional media and techniques and show how multiple media courses can be assembled to form a coherent whole. The issues of student assessment, course evaluation and quality audit are also examined.

Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood is a critical task for youth in foster care, who are often forced to emancipate from the foster care system without any real prepraration, family support, or the education necessary to achieve gainful employment. As a result, many former foster youth end up homeless or living in terrible conditions. Uncertain Futures discusses the plight of youth who have aged out of the system. It provides meaningful, practical solutions for teaching youth to support themselves before they are forced out of care, and details programs that assist youth in becoming self-supporting once they do leave the foster care system.
