Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a light article describing "five steps educators can implement to ensure that we are approaching our work from a learner first perspective." Here they are (quoted):

  • Model practices for empathy and inclusivity.
  • Put out the welcome mat.
  • Ensure every voice is heard.
  • Enable students with the power to reach their highest goals.
  • Offer timely feedback – early and often.

It's hardly authoritative, but a handy list, and I don't think many proponents of learner-centered learning would disagree with any of these points, though of course a lot more could be said on the subject.
