Learner-centred pedagogy

« Back to Glossary Index

Definition

Learner-centred pedagogy follows a constructivist approach, thus it ‘places students at the centre of the teaching-learning process. Students are more active and participative, and the process turns knowledge into a negotiation between teachers and students. Furthermore, this pedagogy starts from students’ interests and objectives, and it carries out a learning process based on real situations and materials, using the current technologies to favour this process.’ (IGI Global, n.d.). This type of pedagogy encourages debates, discussion and critical thinking between all the actors.
