What is Learner's Autonomy ?Learners autonomy implies learners growing independence and responsibility to his/her self direction in the learning process and to enable greater control of his/her learning.

Learners Autonomy is a perennial dynamic process amenable to educational interventions rather than a static product. It is the goal of an ideal pedagogy.Thanasoulas (2013)

What is constructivism

Constructivism is a kind of teaching philosophy based on the concept of learning. It is a process that happens along with learning. Learning is the result of prior knowledge, so that learners can construct their own knowledge by thinking about their previous knowledge and by adding new information on it. Each learner tries to make a mental note and build their critical thinking which makes them an independent learner.

What are the various constructive methods?

The main goal of adopting constructivist teaching is to instill in them an exploration of thinking. Some of the methods that are used are Learning is activity based. It might be experimentation, or projects. Whole group of learners are actively involved. The activity sessions should be interactive. The teacher must discuss and negotiate with the learners. The teachers must motivate the learners and provide them with feedbacks.

Piaget & Constructivism

Conceptualized that learning is an active process of construction rather than a passive assimilation of information or rote memorization.

Believed all learning is constructed, whether it is something we are taught or something we learn on our own.

Whether or not we are taught in a constructivist manner, Piaget believed we are constructing knowledge in all our learning.

Piaget & Learning

According to him Two main states equilibrium & disequilibrium

Believed that we are driven or motivated to learn when we are in disequilibrium We want to understand things The level of disequilibrium must be just right or optimal

Role of Teacher As a Partner As a mediator As a Facilitator

Competency oriented modes of assessment Problem solving and competence based testing To nurture Higher Order Thinking Skills Learning without burden Periodical assessment Classroom assessment Techniques

Areas should be exposed by assessment

Learner's Autonomy and CCEThe shift of learning responsibility from teachers to learners doesnot exist in a vacuum, rather in certain context. Continuous andComprehensive Evaluation is the context.

It is one of the interventions to provide multifarious opportunities and to create favorable ground for nurturing and flourishing autonomy in learner.
