This paper brings together a range of literature addressing components of autonomous teaming. Autonomous teaming provides the opportunity to transform leaming from teacher centered towards student-oriented teaming. Although self-assessment, self-regulation, self- access leaming ,technology, and implementing e-portfolios are different components and strategies to foster autonomy, these strategies cannot facilitate autonomous teaming automatically. Educators are required to transform their traditional role as controllers of teaming to facilitators of teaming in order to support and facilitate autonomous teaming.
