Learner-Centered Teaching - Where Should I Start?

Learner-Centered Teaching - Where Should I Start?

Students taking more responsibility for their learning

With learner-centered teaching, students take more responsibility for their learning.

Itís an approach that focuses a teacherís attention on what students are doing and deals with learning processes explicitly.

However, the challenge for many faculty in attempting this approach is the simple fact that many students come to class so poorly prepared to learn.

As a result, faculty have a difficult time imagining students being any more responsible for their learning than they already are.

The good news, though, is that learner-centered teaching offers simple, straightforward activities that provide teachers with a low-risk way to get started with this approach.
