Promoting Learners



Especially in medicine, most of us are familiar with educational approaches that are instructor centered. The instructor is the single most active person in the learning environment, and bears responsibility for determining what is taught, how it is taught, when it is taught, and how learner performance is assessed. Often underlying instructor-centered approaches to education is the view that learners such as medical students are basically empty receptacles waiting to be filled up with the knowledge the instructor contains.
