Overview of Student-Centered Learning
Class Description & Purpose:
Is your classroom teacher-centered or student-centered? Student-centered learning, also known as learner-centered education, broadly encompasses methods of teaching that shift the focus of instruction from the teacher to the student. In this class, participants examine the pillars of student-centered learning, evaluate where their current practices fall, and determine shifts to move toward a more student-centered classroom.
- Evaluate the difference between teacher-centered and student-centered instruction
- Analyze research and articles that support student-centered learning
- Self-reflect to determine current state of practice within each of the four pillars of student-centered learning
Develop a deeper understanding of student-centered learning in order to consider instructional refinements.
Introductory - Getting started in an area, examples of possible entry points for implementation, foundational components of a practice/strategy, or big picture thinking around a practice/strategy.
