- DescriptionAutomy has become a keyword of language policy in education systems around the world, as the importance of independent learning and new techlogies has grown. Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, Teaching and Researching Automy provides an accessible and comprehensive critical account of the theory and practice of automy.

Topics new to this edition include: - Automy and new techlogies - Teacher automy - The sociocultural implications of automy With over three hundred new references and five new case studies of research on automy providing practical advice on research methods and topics in the field, Teaching and Researching Automy will be an essential introduction for teachers and students to a subject at the cutting edge of language teaching and research.
