About the Center



Teaching is about providing knowledge; learning is about making sense of this knowledge Learning in educational institutions should be about changing the ways in which learners understand, or experience, or conceptualize the world around them. The ‘world around them’ includes the concepts and methods that are characteristic of the discipline or profession that they are studying.

Teaching involves the same process that informs student learning. It implies changing how we think about and experience teaching, it involves changes in our conceptions, in our common-sense theories of teaching as they are expressed in practice
