January 2013 Bulletin: Item 6

Recent Publications by Members

The list below provides details of recent members’ publications in the area of learner autonomy. As usual, it has been a busy and productive year! Our message eliciting these went out to members in the summer, so the most recent publications will go into the next bulletin. As the Beginners Resource Project reflects, we would like to do more than simply listing publications. In this issue, we have two interviews with authors, and we would also like to include reviews of works. We had a very good response to our email request for both reviews and interviews, and so we hope that our activities will expand accordingly. If you would like to write a short review of a recent publication, or interview an author or editor, we’d love to hear from you.
