dc.description.abstractSelf-access centres are learner-oriented language learning environments that encourage the development of learner autonomy (see LEARNER AUTONOMY). Self-access centres (SACs) provide materials, activities, and staff support to help learners develop the skills necessary for taking control over the content, pace, and method of their learning. SACs do not have to be physical spaces (although in practice they often are); increasingly, learning environments are being designed that either combine a physical space with an online support system or that provide all elements of self access online (see for example the Electronic Learning Environment and My English in the further reading section (Alford & Pachler, 2007; Conacher & Kelly-Holmes, 2007). SACs are especially common at tertiary institutions, although they exist at all other school levels, including in primary schools.en_NZ
