Learner-Centered Teaching: Changing the Paradigm

From the 2022 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (recorded 3/16/2022)
Presented by Pat Tille, PhD, MLS(ASCP)CM

As a professional educator in a highly technical discipline, how does an instructor change the focus from content to critical thinking, processes, and the development of highly-skilled professional students? Learner-centered teaching (LCT) is very challenging for faculty, but overwhelmingly more enriching for the students. This session will present methods, challenges, and effectiveness of LCT in a graduate level MLS program.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the components of LCT and curriculum design.
  • Describe the faculty challenges, roles and responsibilities in LCT.
  • Describe the student challenges, roles, responsibilities and effectiveness of LCT.
