Abstract or Summary

Self-Access Language Learning (SALL) has played a prominent part in language education in universities. Its role is to foster autonomous learning among students. With the wide-spread implementation of SALL and its increasing impacts on students, it is important to understand how SALL is managed in order to meet the learning needs of the users in the most resource-effective way. This book provides readers with an understanding of SALL management by setting the discussion against a wider backdrop and also examining details of current good practice. The authors examine issues of leadership and management in education before turning to look at the roles of a SALL manager, and suggest how these roles are changing and what the future may hold for managing SALL. Case studies are used to illustrate how SALL is managed in different universities as a way of contextualising the issues discussed in the book. The Independent Learning Centre (ILC)at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) provides language enhancement support to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Students who need to improve their English, Chinese (Putonghua and Cantonese) and study skills can register on the website to attend the workshops and consultations. The print and non-print resources are accessible to students during the library opening hours.
