Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 17, 4:07 PM

Do you wonder what the difference is between student-centered learning and teacher-centered learning? If you do check out this post. They provide a list of 15 examples of each.

Below you will see three sets of examples. The first one is student-centered. The second one is teacher-centered.

1A. Being clear about how to do well in your class

1B. Being clear about how you will promote, measure, and celebrate understanding

2A. Handing students a rubric or scoring guide

2B. Collaborating with students to create the rubric or scoring guide

3A. Helping students master content

3B. Helping students understand what’s worth understanding

Many of the changes are small tweaks, but they will take time and effort. If one of your goals this year is to create a more student-centered learning environment you will find many ideas in this post.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, July 22, 8:57 PM

I don't usually do this but I reacted quite strongly to the premise made in this video about three "new" ways of thinking that will shape leaders into the next century. 


At best, the speaker has verified some classic themes that are covered in most if not all of the traditional leadership development programs that exist today.  


Below are the 3 main "breakthroughs" that I heard from the speaker and my thoughts on how I have learned and practiced these "new" leadership themes. 


1. Leaders see beyond the current situation and prepare for upcoming  change...  This is what scenario planning is ALL about.  


* Scenario Planning accounts for many factors that may combine in complex ways to create surprising futures.  This has been written about and practiced for DECADES.  


2. A diverse network...  Hummm...  I think this is what most HR departments are trying to instill in their organizations.  


Now, if the speaker had gotten into the immense difficulty of going from diverse to inclusive, I would have given her this one.  But, no, just more talk about how we need to work and understand people who think differently than we think.  Not new...


3. Courage to make a change and persistence to stay the course while others are telling you it is not going to work.  Hummmm...  Really?  This is NOT covered in the current leadership development programs?  


I usually scoop content that I feel is helpful, not this time.  If you are new to leadership development, maybe this is worthwhile.  If you are educated in leadership, take the 10 minutes and practice how to provide honoring feedback.
