The classroom environment should support students’ autonomy through teaching and assessment methods. This article highlights students’ perceptions about the value of implementing seminars as a teaching and an assessment method in a children’s literature course in a college of applied sciences (XCAS). Additionally, preparation considerations and limitations of such implementation are discussed. Findings indicted the positive effects of seminars in enriching classroom learning and students’ responsibility for their own learning which can be achieved through training for teachers and students. Practical implications of seminar implementations for future use are outlined and conceptual framework is suggested based on the findings.
