EDGING TOWARDS THE THRESHOLD CONCEPT OF AUTONOMY IN LANGUAGE LEARNING AND TEACHING THROUGH A MOOC BLEND: Becoming Autonomous Learners and Teachers

Abstract

Autonomy has proven to be troublesome knowledge for students enrolled on the MA in English Language Teaching at Coventry University (UK). In this study, based on previous action-research cycles, ‘expert students’ explore how a curricular MOOC blend can help to ‘scaffold’ this troublesome knowledge for their peers. In so doing, they enable staff to approach such ‘alien’ concepts through the looking glass of their students’ perspective, in a role-reversal model of action-research-informed threshold concepts pedagogy.
