I use learner-centered approach in teaching in which I focus heavily on the needs of the students. I also incorporate following key principles for this approach in my lesson plan (Chickering and Gamson, 1987).
- Encourages contacts between students and faculty.
- Develops reciprocity and cooperation among students.
- Uses active learning techniques.
- Gives prompt feedback.
- Emphasizes time on task.
- Communicates high expectations.
- Respects diverse talents and ways of learning.
