  • The technical dimension concerns the skills that help students own their learning process (Benson, 1997).

  • The psychological dimension involves the development of traits of responsibility, critical thinking, and metacognition over their learning process. Learners are expected to construct knowledge starting from their social interaction and continue their self-evaluation to reach self-awareness.
  • The political dimension involves learners’ ability to deal with power issues within the teaching-learning process. Learners should always have the power of having a choice in the learning process.
