Student Centered Learning: Keys to Motivation and Persistence: Student-centered learning (SCL) is an instructional approach that focuses on student needs, allowing students to influence the content, activities, materials, and pace of learning according to their interests and needs. This course provides an overview of SCL as well as strategies for moving toward student-centeredness in adult classrooms.
Deeper Learning Through Questioning; Questioning is a powerful teaching approach. When teachers ask higher-order questions and give students opportunities to think critically and to develop deep explanations, learning is enhanced. Equally important as teacher questions are student self-questions. Self-questioning can guide learning and help students monitor their progress.
Participants must choose either a writing or math focus at registration. We ask that participants be committed to completing the course before enrolling as space is limited.
There is no cost for course participants. The estimated completion time is 6 hours. Participants must successfully complete course requirements to receive a certificate of completion.
