STUDENT CENTERED LEARNING

NOTE: This journal has been combined with the Journal of Student Centered Learning. All content described below now appears in the Journal of Faculty Development beginning with Volume 21, Issue 3.

Encouraging college and university faculty in the search for ways to focus on learning that is student centered versus teacher centered.

The additional thrust of the journal includes a focus on students as active, involved learners versus focusing on teachers and teaching styles.

Teachers who embrace student centered learning (SCL) encourage students to:

  • take responsibility for their own learning,
  • involve students directly in the discovery of knowledge,
  • use materials that challenge students to use their prior knowledge to create new and deeper understandings of concepts,
  • embrace the concept that learning is enhanced through social activities such as cooperative learning, problem based learning, etc.,
  • use school, work, home, and community as resources for collaborative learning,
  • involve all constituents in contributing to student learning (faculty, students, staff, alumni, employers, family, and others),
  • use activities beyond the classroom to enhance the learning experience.

Specific learning approaches that have strong student centered components are Cooperative Learning, Collaborative Learning, Learning Communities, Problem Based Learning, Project Based Learning, Service Learning, Case Method, peer based learning, paired or grouped courses, adult learning, experiential learning, Constructivist learning, to name a few.

The Journal, published three times a year, serves as a medium for the exchange of information and ideas that will address these pressing issues in higher education. Price of annual subscription (3 issues) $52.00; request information about bulk subscriptions and back issues; ($15.00 S&H outside U.S.)
