Student-centered Learning and Teaching

Student-centered learning approach can change the face of education into a lifelong learning process in which the learner seeks solutions to problems without complete dependency upon a teacher. Student-centered approach typically refers to forms of instruction that give students opportunities to participate more actively in discussions, explore topics that interest them, and generally contribute to the design of their own course of study.
