概要 Two language instructors piloted a study which was to investigate whether teaching self-directed learning explicitly to students as a part of their regular courses would encourage more students to utilize the self-access center. Students were introduced to various aspects of self-directed learning to achieve their goals. They were encouraged to use the self-access center when implementing their learning plan. At the end of the course, a survey was conducted in all classes to explore their experiences of using the center, and whether their experiences influenced their perception of the center and also their motivation for using the center in the future. The results reveal that majority of them appreciated the atmosphere and the resources of the center; however, lack of time and affective aspects are the main negative factors which prevent students from using the center.
