Excellent information and presentation covering student vs teacher centered learning.  

Robin Cowen, Army and Navy Academy


I thought this was a great overview of the essence of student -centered learning. ther ereferences and links are very useful.  This would be very helpful guidance to anyone new to teaching or who is trying to make the transition from "teacher-centered" to "student-centered" learning." Full of good ideas.

Extremely useful explanation of how to move from "dispenser of knowledge" to " facilitator of learning" through inquiry based classroom techniques.  Lots of useful links throughout the presentation.
