Authors : Sakraoui Amel .

Abstract

Abstract Focus was laid, in this area of significant development in telecommunication technologies, on implementing new educational orientations in higher education that favour the cultivation of positive self-beliefs and learning strategies which commensurate effectiveness and competence development. This goes through articulating a broad educational philosophy that promotes the development of new self-directed modes (or habits) of learning that foster strategic, sophisticated, “self-referential learners”. This study aims at investigating the effects that self-directed strategies have on third year EFL students’ performance scores in psychology.
