Since the year 2020, many educational systems and institutions have adopted distance education as the new approach to learning. Even though it can be very productive and convenient, students might struggle because of the reduced amount of face-to-face interaction with their teachers and due to the lack of previous training on this modality. In this interactive workshop, we will define the concepts of learner autonomy, independence, and self-regulation as key elements for success in the learning process. Furthermore, we will explore different ways in which teachers can promote and develop those skills in their students. Finally, we will look at five technological tools that will help in the process.
