Following an exploration of the resources combined in blended programmes and some socio-cultural factors that affect teachers and learners, this chapter turns its attention to autonomy and motivation in a blended setting. It focuses in particular on the teacher’s role in creating and maintaining a learning environment that supports the development of autonomy, and why this is important.
