Student-Centered Learning in Higher Education

This essay reports on innovations used by college teachers, and evaluations of their successes. Weimer contrasts the practices of teacher-centered college teaching and student-centered college teaching in terms of (1) the balance of power in the classroom, (2) the function of the course content, (3) the role of the teacher versus the role of the student, (4) the responsibility of learning, (5) the purpose and processes of evaluation. Using Weimer's specifications, this essay identifies several examples where college teachers are seeking to move toward more student-centered classrooms.
