Abstract

This paper discusses computer-assisted language learning through the prism of learner autonomy. It describes the first evaluative study that was conducted at the Centre for Language and Communication Studies (CLCS) at Trinity College in 2011 regarding the potential of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to promote learner autonomy, based on the incorporation of computer work in the language courses offered by CLCS. The methodology used for this research is presented along with a brief questionnaire and interview data account to offer an overall view of the students’ and teachers’ opinions of computer work and how this affected their learning process. Finally, conclusions are drawn along with suggestions for future improvement.
