student-centered learning

Student-centred learning incorporates the individual interests and strengths of students in the learning process, creating a fruitful and engaging learning environment, where students have ownership on their learning process. Focusing on the students’ perspective can result in a high degree of engagement and motivation, while learners have an opportunity to work at their own pace and explore their own interests. On the level of the institution this requires an integrated, collaborative approach, to create a learning environment where students feel that the school is in touch with their needs. A student-centred environment also means considering, assessing and providing the necessary support to the personal barriers and difficulties that each student might face, and developing support systems that can be sensitive to individual needs.
