Welcome to the AILA Research Network

Welcome to the website of the AILA Research Network (ReN) on Learner Autonomy in Language Learning. This AILA ReN is a group of approximately 300 language educators and researchers from all over the world who are interested in the study of learner autonomy in language learning. This ReN was previously known as the AILA Scientific Commission on Learner Autonomy. If you are interested in knowing more about our history, please click here

The main purposes of our organization are to gather and disseminate information on research in our field and to keep members abreast of events and publications. We do this through the following means: 

AILA ReN on Learner Autonomy Newsletter 

Learner Autonomy Project Inventory (LAPI) 

Publications on Learner Autonomy 

Upcoming Events and Conferences

In addition, we host a lively discussion forum on autonomy in language learning AUTO-L

If you are interested in becoming a member of our organization, please contact Sara Cotterall, the membership chair.

ReN is headed by two conveners who are elected by the members every three years. A convener's role is to represent the interests of ReN members in communications with AILA executive, and lead the ReN's activities for a three-year period. The current conveners of AILA ReN on Learner Autonomy are Terry Lamb of the University of Sheffield and Garold Murray of Akita International University.

If you would like more information about the ReN, please contact the conveners.
