Abstract

This article delves into the intricacies of autonomous learning within university classrooms, particularly addressing obstacles associated with cultural and socioeconomic diversity. Through an extensive literature review, the paper identifies key challenges such as varied learning styles, linguistic barriers, and unequal access to resources. Proposed solutions encompass fostering inclusivity, effective technology integration, and targeted support to establish an environment conducive to autonomous learning. Concluding insights emphasize the collaborative efforts needed from educators and policymakers to implement these strategies and cultivate inclusive, technologically enriched, and supportive learning environments in diverse university settings.
