STUDENT TEACHERS' UNDERSTANDING OF THE LEARNER AUTONOMY IN THE EUROPEAN PORTFOLIO FOR STUDENTS TEACHERS OF LANGUAGES

The 'learning to learn' orientation is the learner’s autonomy and it means a set of skills and abilities that learners need to master in order to learn independently Language teachers’ training is very important for their continuous professional development. Between CEFRL and The European Profile for Language Teachers Education, the European Portofolio for Studen Teachers of Languages (EPOSTL) can help student teachers as well as practising teachers to identify the necessary teaching competences, irrespective of the learning context. EPOSTL launches a very challenging set of didactic competences, as an opportunity for student teachers and practising teachers to reflect on their didactic knowledge and teaching skills. The triangle formed by the pre-service key competences, the teaching descriptors and the teachers’ dossier has been thought as a permanent exchange of ideas and examples of good practice.
Having worked on the EPOSTL Romanian version, I have understood better the teachers’ training language role for improving the mutual respect and flow of linguistic diversity and cultural values. The document includes student teachers own experience and expectations, a self-evaluation set, a teacher’s dossier, a glossary, the index and a user’s guide. I personally appreciated the descriptors’ core that should be interpreted through an on-going process.
