Learner Autonomy

Graduates should be able to demonstrate the ability to work with autonomy and self-direction, to manage their time, prioritise tasks and make well-developed judgements, as they apply their knowledge and skills in professional contexts. Students need to become self-aware, drawing on their own experiences and recognising that their skills and capabilities extend beyond the simple recall of factual knowledge. Learning opportunities must encourage independent discovery, interpretation and assessment of information.

ECU has a course learning outcome about autonomy, so that students can demonstrate autonomy, accountability and judgement for their own learning, scholarship and professional practice, in accordance with Australian Quality Framework requirements for Bachelor degree graduates and above.


This resource is designed to assist you with developing learner autonomy within your unit and will support you in developing your current knowledge in this area.
