This book addresses an important issue in foreign language teacher training, that of fostering learner autonomy in higher education. On the basis of an appropriate theoretical framework and systematically collected empirical evidence the book presents a learning portfolio to be used by student teachers of foreign languages. Teacher educators will find helpful guidance and supporting materials as far as the learning portfolio’s flexible use in multiple contexts is concerned. At the same time the thorough discussion of action research, its objectives, methodology, scientific merits and effective conduct presents a major contribution of the book to the field. Written in a clear, concise and reader-friendly manner, this book can be used by foreign language teacher educators, student teachers and scholars in the domain of higher education internationally.
