This chapter examines the design of innovative online courses in language teaching methodology for middle school teachers of English in China that would encourage learner and teacher autonomy. It considers how the development of a capacity for autonomy through scaffolded experiences support online programme participants in acquiring the independent learning skills necessary for success in this increasingly popular mode of learning. It also discusses the e-learning project called eChina-UK funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).
