Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development | Management for classroom success |

Competency-based or “personalized” learning allows students to master skills at their own pace with innovative support systems and new technologies. This method saves time and money and improves learners’ retention. But students are only half of the equation.

4 principles of Student-Centered Learning

4 principles of Student-Centered Learning | Management for classroom success |

In our view, student-centered learning is a process of learning that puts the needs of the students over the conveniences of planning, policy, and procedure.


Like any phrase, “student-centered learning” is subjective and flexible–and only useful insofar as it ultimately supports the design of learning experiences for students. For example, arguing for a “student-centered approach” to creating curriculum frameworks that center the authentic knowledge needs of each student makes sense, while creating a “student-centered” classroom that gives students little choice in content, voice in product, or a human necessity for creative expression does not. Student-centeredness uses an actual person as an audience, and designs learning experiences backwards from that point.


With that in mind, here are 4 principles of student-centered learning to consider as you design curriculum and instruction.
