Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to identify the most influenced factor between two leadership styles, either transformational leadership or transactional leadership, on learner autonomy among non-academic staff in Malaysian public universities. Other objectives in this study also include to examine the relationships between transformational leadership, transactional leadership and learner autonomy; and to examine the underlying demographic factors such as gender, age and education level that could influence learner autonomy. Data was collected through a survey of 267 respondents using the approach of quantitative research methods. Analysis of the quantitative data suggests that transformational leadership and transactional leadership are significantly associated with learner autonomy. While, transactional leadership is most significantly associated with learner autonomy among non-academic staff in Malaysian public universities. The results also showed that demographic factors such as gender, age and education level do not have any significance on learner autonomy
