Title:
Learner autonomy in educational institutions and the challenges of (human) development in Nigeria and Africa

Abstract:
Education makes the human being a fully realized project. It is a catalyst for the realization of the potentialities of humans. This can only be successfully done if it is acknowledged that the individual is full of immense potential. It’s the logic of learner-autonomy and all that it portends. In many an African setting this logic remains far-fetched. Teaching and learning in most African settings do not give room for the full application and realization of learner autonomy. It has grossly affected the realisation of the full potentials of individuals who are to be agents of development. This paper seeks to expose and address the process of teaching and learning in the African (Nigerian) setting in a way that shows how it defies the logic of learner- autonomy which subsequently affects human and social development. It concludes that education should permit learners to exploit their curiosities and creative acumen as major routes to development.
