Student-Centered Education: Making Learning Exciting and Long Lasting


Concept by Ilaria Barbieri

The evolution of the educational system has changed from a teacher-centered to a student-centered paradigm.

It is beneficial for teachers to understand the student’s needs and expectations in order to create an environment where the students are excited about the learning process thus, feel more involved and in control of their own learning.

In student-centered approaches, teachers mentor students to acquire knowledge actively. That knowledge will not be lost after taking a test or leaving school.

In student-centered classrooms, learners are provided with significant opportunities to develop knowledge, as well as practical skills for the 21st century, that will accompany them throughout life.

In this course, attendees will be guided to identify practical solutions that encourage pupils’ curiosity, imagination, and problem-solving skills.

They will explore how to design collaborative tasks, flipped lessons, and project-based learning activities, and how to connect what happens inside and outside of the school.

By the end of the course, participants will feel more confident to boost students’ autonomy, collaboration, and motivation, as well as enthusiastic to manage learning activities that aim at developing students’ long-lasting knowledge and key competencies.
