Details What are students actually studying outside of the classroom, and for how long? This question, in conjunction with the need to encourage more self-directed learning from our students, led to the creation and implementation of language study trackers that 1st-year university students would use. Two trials were held, first with a paper-based tracker, and the second with an online mobile-based tracker. The researchers will present the results and discuss how tracking can impact students and teachers, especially in regards to promoting autonomous learning both in and out of the classroom.
