On the Correlations between Teacher Autonomy and Learner Autonomy under the Network Environment
Following learner autonomy （LA）, teacher autonomy （TA） has recently acquired a prominence in discourse on foreign language education. This study, taking TA as one influential variable on LA, tries to explore the relationship between them by conducting the investigation of some Chinese college English teachers of non-English majors with quantitative and qualitative approaches. The results show that there exist some correlations between TA and LA. In the end, the author gives some suggestions on how to promote learners autonomy in their English learning by cultivating and promoting teachers’ own autonomy in English teaching under the network environment.
