Autonomous learning is defined as an approach to learning with which learners hold the power or right to regulate and control their own learning activities. Learners are in charge of their own learning processes with autonomy. Autonomous learning is also called self-directed learning.
Learning to learn is essential in the development of a self-regulated, autonomous learner. Teaching the skills of researching, developing critical and creative thinking, communication skills, and social and self-management abilities is key for learners today (OECD, 2018).
There are many examples of learners who excelled
academically thanks to sheer grit and commitment to hard
work. That is the work ethic expected from learners.
Our curricula promote self-discipline and autonomous
learning, and are aimed to guide our learners develop the
ability to study through self-paced learning. Although the
required pass mark is a minimum of 70%, the aim is not
merely to help learners get good marks, but to prepare them
for study at a tertiary level, where discipline and
self-paced learning are crucial keys for success.
Student-centered learning emphasizes each student's
interests, abilities, and learning styles, placing the
teacher as a facilitator of learning for individuals rather
than for the class as a whole.
In a teacher-centered classroom, teachers choose what the students will learn, how the students will learn, and how the students will be assessed on their learning. In contrast, student-centered learning requires students to be active, responsible participants in their own learning and with their own pace of learning.
