Why We Are here
UCEC Student-centered teaching and learning
United Colours Learning Center’s focuses on the needs, abilities, interests, and learning styles of each individual student and has many implications for the design of curriculum, course content, and interactivity in the learner’s environment. Accordingly, a prominent pedagogy will be teacher-as-coach, to provoke students to learn how to learn and thus to teach themselves, rather than the more traditional teacher-centered learning with teacher-as-deliverer-of-instructional-services, which places the teacher at its center in an active role and students in a passive, receptive role. This pedagogy acknowledges the student’s voice as central to the learning experience and requires students to be active, responsible participants in their own learning. To capitalize on this, teaching and learning should be personalized to the maximum feasible extent. Decisions about the details of the course of study, the use of students’ and teachers’ time, and the choice of teaching materials and specific pedagogies must be unreservedly placed in the hands of the staff and students.
