learning includes methods of teaching focusing instruction to the students. It aims to develop
learner’s independence by putting learning responsibility in the hands of
learners. Most teachers are still using teacher centric approach and do not
create such opportunities for learner to be involved in their learning. These
teachers do not focus on skills and practices that enable lifelong learning and
independent problem solving; they choose what students will learn, how the
students will learn and how students will be assessed on the learning.
Student-centric learning puts students'
interests and needs first, acknowledging student efforts as central to the
learning experience. Student centric learning requires students to be active,
responsible in their own learning and with their own pace of learning.
Upon the completion of this unit, teachers will
acquire competences to identify technologies which will help them to support
learner centric approach.
