This chapter considers how teachers of English in China may be encouraged to develop greater autonomy, both as teachers and learners, through e-learning in an interactive learning environment. Using data from an extensive needs analysis research for two collaborative e-learning projects involving universities in China and the UK, the study explores the currently held perceptions of Chinese teachers of English concerning learner and teacher autonomy. It then goes on to describe the influences of the teachers' voices and the pedagogical principles informing the project work to design exemplar e-teacher training materials, and highlights some of the design features for supporting and developing autonomy.

Keywords:   China, UK, e-learning, English language, teacher autonomy
