Abstract

It has been long noticed that students are lacking the motivation for those type of teacher-centered learning environment. Student-Centered Learning (SCL) is used in the literature to indicate the shift of emphasis from the teacher to the student as the heart of the learning process. In this work we have discussed the methodology of SCL, presented our experience of applying SCL on computer education. Students play the active role in this process and take responsible for their own learning. Tutors are required to use new method to deliver knowledge, being a guider more than an expert.
