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.

Outcomes:

Participants will...

  • 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
Takeaway(s): 

Develop a deeper understanding of student-centered learning in order to consider instructional refinements.

Class Level:  

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.
