Thank you for your posting. I agree with you that the instructor should not be the primary resource for the information. The instructor can be an instrument for helping students to learn better (Blumberg, 2009). I also went through a nursing school which had traditional learning style. I like Walden University’s teaching style. The major differences I have experienced in “Learner-centered teaching” at Walden is that I become an active participant as a learner instead of being just being a receiver. The effect of being a participant in learning process brings a student’s motivation, confidence, and control (Blumberg, 2008). As you use Learner-centered teaching in your psych practice, I am sure your students are motivated, encouraged, and gain more confidence in learning. Do you observe this effect in your students?
