Education International and The European Students’ Union. Student-Centred Learning. Toolkit for Students, Staff and Higher Education Institutions. Brussels, 2010. Pages: 74.
The toolkit is a product of a joint project coordinated by Education International and The European Students’ Union, entitled Time for a New Paradigm in Education: Student-Centered Learning (T4SCL). The project is funded by the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) administered by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA). The toolkit addresses key issues related to student-centred learning, including basic principles and definitions, the benefits to stakeholders of this approach, and implementation strategies at the level of instructors and institutions. The fundamental questions of “changing mindsets” and “maintaining a culture of SCL” are also considered, along with an effort to address common misconceptions about the phenomenon.
