Teaching strategy

“Ways of thinking about teaching and learning that emphasize student responsibility and activity in learning rather than content or what the teachers are doing. Essentially student-centred learning has student responsibility and activity at its heart, in contrast to a strong emphasis on teacher control and coverage of academic content found in much conventional, didactic teaching”.

Teaching strategy

LCE makes the student own a part of knowledge acquisition when they research ahead of a lesson as well as collaborate with fellow students

That is exactly how I feel when learner is  allowed to contribute to knowledge development it makes learning More permanent, constructive and more meaningful

I agree with you because the learners become more independent and get exposed to critiquing conservative ideas in order to get a new knowledge established.

Learners have an opportunity to get involved in deep thinking and knowledge creation. This promotes real learning that consume information from the teacher without participation in its creation.

True; however it represents quite a shift from the " be quiet, listen and take down notes" regime. The learners are likely to need quite some encouragement so as to freely throw in their ideas once they realize they are truly valued. I'm looking forward to the new semester.

This is a helpful definition Zainab, but it also highlights one of the significant challenges for teachers. if students have been discouraged from talking or sharing ideas ('don't copy her work') it is quite a big shift for them! Do you have any specific strategies for helping learners to adapt to new approaches?

Absolutely true.
