Student-centred learning is an approach in which students influence the content, activities, materials and pace of learning. This learning model places the students at the centre of the learning process. The instructor provides students with opportunities to learn independently, and from one another, and facilitates the development of skills that they need to do so effectively.
The core factors involved in student-centred learning are:
- Co-planning, which requires a review of learning goals and competencies to chalk out the best methods of learning for each student.
- Personalized learning plan development, which makes use of the students’ individual preferences, ability and knowledge level to draw learning paths for them, aided by digital or human resources.
