Altan & Trombly (2001) says  „Creating a learner-centered classroom is a response to the problem created when a student’s learning style differs from the teacher’s teaching style.  The way a teacher presents subject matter may conflict with students‟ ideas about learning, thus resulting in no learning.  Therefore, it is the teacher‟s duty to respect individual learner differences and to assist the students in discovering their own learning processes and preferences.  It requires putting students at the center of classroom organization and respecting their needs, strategies, and styles’.
