How Should a Student-centered Classroom Look?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many times when teachers attend professional development seminars they hear about an amazing lesson to include in their classroom curriculum. Upon returning to their campus they try to implement it with eagerness, but unfortunately it does not go they way they had expected. So, what happened? Where did they go wrong? What if it was not a problem with the teacher or the lesson, but with the environment? Oftentimes, the ideas, lessons, and strategies we hear about fall short of our expectations because the infrastructure within the classroom is not conducive to that type of lesson. Rarely do our students know what to do with the autonomy and unwritten expectations associated with student-centered learning experiences. In this session, we will focus on how teachers can create a classroom environment that promotes and sustains student-centered teaching and learning practices. Participants will draw from memorable learning experiences and collaborate with one another to define what student-centeredness can look like in their classrooms. We will also hear about what research says about student-centered learning and its implications for our practice as teachers. Finally, participants will be given the space to examine various classroom practices and begin thinking about them through a student-focused lens. Our hope is for participants to leave with worthwhile ideas and practical strategies that they can use to begin making their classrooms more student-centered. Will you take a chance on this idea of teaching and learning? Will you make a change in your classroom?
