What is ​​Learner Centered Education?

​As the opposite of an instructor-led approach, this type of course structure is designed to put learner autonomy and decision-making front and center. Instructors design parameters for assignments like the form of the final product and provide detailed information about the learning objectives, but individuals and groups work to master the material using collaboration and individual research to process the various skills and informational resources they need to internalize.
