Student Centred Learning

One of the main defining lines of action for the reform of European higher education (the Bologna Process) is student-centered education. This is a complex concept that involves all relevant actors in shaping the flexible learning path of the student in a university and that puts in the center of the instructive-educational process the student, being one of the most important trends which guides the didactic activity in the current academic environment.

Both students and teachers contribute to the realization of a student-centered education, and last but not least, the higher education institution. Each of these parts has a decisive role in building a student-centered education, which is why the absence or non-involvement of one of the factors makes it impossible to achieve the concept of student-centered education.

Unlike the practice of higher education a few years ago, in which the teacher focused on the process of teaching knowledge, followed by their evaluation, now the teacher gives up the delivery of knowledge as a product and focuses on the model "Knowledge as a process". In student-centered education, through this approach, teachers aim to focus on students' thinking, on their involvement in projects, on solving problems related to practical life (by finding new, original solutions), on scientific research and learning new research techniques, stimulating the thinking, imagination, creativity and originality of the educable and thus removing the lack of motivation and formalism of both educational agents. Teaching is not limited to the simple transmission of knowledge, but to the use of some attractive mechanisms in the educational process.

The university contributes to the achievement of student-centered education both through ensuring institutional conditions absolutely necessary for the optimal relationship between professor and student in the educational process in the university environment, as well as through ensuring material endowments, resources, programs, services and adequate regulations this new approach to education.
