Student-Centered Learning Part 2

As we prepare students to enter a world of work where the jobs they will do may not yet exist, we must intentionally provide instruction that moves students from the receiver of information to the explorer of information. We identify the characteristics, challenges and opportunities to shift our instruction to a more student-centered approach.

Consider keeping a learning journal to chart your learning and document your study.
