Twenty first century learners must know how to be critical thinkers. We will examine ways to refocus our teaching so students can become more active learners. In turn, we can become more effective facilitators: empowering our students to find their voices and demonstrating their understanding and knowledge of the subject at hand. We will examine our current teaching styles and reflect on ways to start making changes. We will also look at our assessment tools (e.g. Flubberoo) which have some flaws, making it hard to gain information on critical thinking. Instead we will create meaningful assessments that will effectively measure student learning. At the end of this course, you will have a better understanding of the components of a student-centered classroom and the tools you need to put it into practice.
