Learner-Centered Pedagogy and the Fear of Losing Control

Learner-Centered Pedagogy and the Fear of Losing Control | internationalyogafestival | Scoop.it
But near the end of the semester, two of the brightest students in the course asked to see me. When we met, they asked a very simple question: “What happened to the course we loved at the beginning of the semester?” I asked them to explain. They recalled wistfully the excitement of doing research and reporting what they had found, listening to their peers reports and the dynamic exchanges between students about provinces they had studied. They confessed that the lectures had been difficult to follow, and even harder to record in note form. Half the time they had difficulty making connections or understanding the narrative that I had condensed from the sources I had used. By the end of the conversation, they communicated a message I have never forgotten: we want to learn, and not be taught.

Looking back on that experience, I realize that it reflects a pitfall many professors fall into: mistaking “teaching” with “learning.” In my insecurity and desire to control the contact time, I dominated the classroom and filled it with the fruits of my own learning, rather than creating an experience that would enable my students to learn effectively. Those two brave students (grades had not been assigned!) helped me realize that my job is to facilitate learning. That means creating learner-centered experiences, and not classrooms dominated by the instructor’s (my) fear of losing control.

Jivasuji (Pradeep Kumar) teachings are called Naturality or Sahajta. Naturality is 'to live according to our nature' and 'walk our own path'. The core of his teachings is about the fear of death (and life) and how we can experience the realm beyond death which frees from fear and allow us to live full life. http://www.internationalyogaweek.com/home.html#presenters ;
