Learner Centered Teaching

8 February 2011

Learner-Centered Teaching:

  • Is equitable–accoommodates students’ learning styles, cultures, and abilities
  • Assumes that every student can learn
  • Gives clear direcctions–the syllabus, assignments, and all teaching materials are transparent and based on rubrics
  • Is rich in feedback–lets students know how they’re doing at every step
  • Emphasizes feedback over evaluation
  • Elicits student discovery and construction of knowledge
  • Is holistic–focuses on deep understanding instead of recitation of fats
  • Is interdisciplinary–helps students make connections among subjects and between their experience and the subject

DOESN’T ASK WHAT THE TEACHER IS TEACHING BUT WHAT THE STUDENT IS LEARNING!
