Does your institution lie to you? Is your instruction really student-centred?

Maybe you have been talked into enrolling in a studentcentred institution? If that is the case and you liked the idea of it being “student-centred”, read this first: oklets/Jones-Student-Centered.pdf Now, if the class size in your institution is more than 1215, if you are asked to keep quiet all the time, if your classes are visited to monitor for usage of mobile phones and other devices, if you are not free to come and go any time you wish, then your classroom is certainly not student-centred!

• • • • Are you a weak or strong student? Were you in another institution before and did you move in order to get higher grades? Are you someone who prefers to stay quiet in a corner? Do you participate in class with constructive remarks that are worthy of note? You need to self-assess your profile and that of your colleagues/classmates. If you find that you (or the majority of your classmates or colleagues) are not active, engaged, participating, enthusiastic, empowered, responsible and ready to work, then something is wrong in your institution’s aim to be student-centred. • • • • • Are your professors/teachers empowering you enough? Do they trust you? Do they suspect you of plagiarising all the time? Do they give you all the information? Do they keep information from you and give you bits and pieces little by little? If you find that there is no trust between you and those who teach you, then something is going wrong with the student-centred policy of your institution.

The Myth of Student-Centredness… There is no such thing as a non-student-centred classroom in an ideal teaching environment! All learning shoud be by nature and essence student-centred.
