Student-Centered Pedagogy: What it is [episode 29]

Click below to hear about student-centered pedagogy:

Ready to get off the stage and be in the audience with your students during your classes? That’s what we’re diving into in this new series focusing on student-centered pedagogy. We’re talking about everything you need to know about shifting your pedagogy to be more student centered.

Today, we are looking at what student centered pedagogy is and what it isn’t. We revisit transforming our teaching from one dimensional to three dimensional and becoming more of a facilitator than a lecturer in our lessons. We break down common misconceptions and address some fears you may be having about letting students take more control of their learning.  

I give you some examples of how I implement student-centered pedagogy while still having structure and a plan – because we all know how much I love planning ahead! If you’re wondering how to move your students from passive to active learning so the content can be more meaningful to them, this episode is for you!
