Creating Learning-Centred Environments - IDEA13 - 121113

1,760 views

Published on

In a world where knowing how to learn and monitor your own learning is more important than just knowing the facts, education and training is gravitating to more learning-centred approaches. Learning-centred environments support learners to not only have input into what is they need to learn, but they also help them determine how their work should be monitored and evaluated. In learning-centred practice, the monitoring of learner progress is no longer the sole responsibility of the teacher, but that of learner, their peers and their mentors through the use of online personal learning spaces or eportfolios (Brown, Chen & Gordon, 2012).

  5. 5. What are learning-centred environments? “Learning-centered practices are represented in practice when the faculty member invites learners to have some determination in not only how the work will be pursued and represented, but also in determining what it is that is necessary to learn. In learning-centered practice it is presumed that students will collaborate, employ peer review, and network to inform their learning.“ (Brown, Chen & Gordon, 2012, pg 133” Brown, Chen & Gordon (2012), The Annual AAEEBL Survey at Two: Looking Back and Looking Ahead, International Journal of ePortfolio, Virginia Tech & The University of Georgia, Vol 2, No2, pp. 129-138 http://www.theijep.com/past_2_2.cfm
