Do you want to create an engaging course that allows students to construct knowledge through participating, interacting, and sharing? 

A course where students are given a chance to lead, teach, and facilitate?

By creating a student-centered course, learners serve as navigators and take responsibility for their learning goals. They are active and engaged in their learning, they collaborate with one another, and learn 21st century skills.  The key to success is to implement these 7 strategies:

  1. Form a trusting, caring environment
  2. Facilitate, coach, and manage
  3. Design learning goals; focus on mastery
  4. Design an action plan
  5. Encourage teamwork and collaboration
  6. Create an active, engaged learning environment
  7. Learn by doing
