Teaching In A Student-Centered World

Sayed Abdul Moiz

Academics have adopted a student-centric approach wherein, the traditional methods of preaching knowledge are re-oriented to provide instruction that is required by students to be employed. Previously, academics had a curriculum that was topic-oriented, meaning it was much more theory centric rather than being task-oriented. However, the change within the business paradigm and the evolution of the market has led to this concept being changed. Teaching, the idea of it is not restricted to classrooms anymore, and it includes field trips followed by a practical predefined study that infuses innovative technology to aid the process of learning. Technology has not just aided students; it has also helped teachers in terms of evaluating the learning process of a student and providing critical feedback. This report has mentioned the techniques that teachers should implement to adapt to a student-centred approach through the implementation of team learning and problem-based learning. The primary dogma that presides over the student-oriented path is based on engagement, followed by self-evaluation and lastly analytical thinking. Students would need to approach each module within their course, implementing the problem-solving approach since this approach is highly appreciated in modern business. Finally, through the kaleidoscope of psychology, the behaviouralist approach of the students’ needs to be analysed by teachers. This approach impacts the feedback process and thereby enables the students to understand their drawbacks and how they could improve in the future. The findings within this report have been supported through evidence from previous literature and are, therefore, indicative of the change within the teaching paradigm.
