A learner-centered approach emphasizes learning as the result of a student’s active engagement in learning activities. This means activities where the learners are responsible participants in the learning task. It places the learner’s experiences, development of knowledge, and meaning in the center of the learning process. The teacher’s role is supporting and facilitating the learning process and provide feedback.
