Tips for creating a student-centered curriculum

The Importance of Student-Centered Learning

The best way to help students learn is to create a curriculum that is good for students, pushes them beyond what they find easy or comfortable. When you push learners out of their comfort zones, you encourage them to grow, learn new concepts and skills, develop confidence in their abilities, and see themselves as capable learners.
