MIPER is Shifting the Focus of Activity from Teacher to Learners

In the traditional approach to college teaching, most class time is spent with the professor lecturing and the students watching and listening. The students work individually on assignments, and cooperation is discouraged. Learner-centered teaching methods shift the focus of activity from the teacher to the learners.

We at MIPER realized that, educational model of content delivery is changing now more than ever in the past, student-centered approaches to learning are critical.

Student-Centered Teaching Strategies @ MIPER

Active learning, in which students solve problems, answer questions, formulate questions of their own, discuss, explain, debate, or brainstorm during class

Cooperative learning, in which students work in teams on problems and projects under conditions that assure both positive interdependence and individual accountability

Inductive teaching and learning, in which students are first presented with challenges. Inductive methods include inquiry-based learning, case-based instruction, problem-based learning, project-based learning, and just-in-time teaching
