Examining the Role of the Instructor in Problem-Centered Instruction
TLRPTIL Volume 59, Number 4, ISSN 8756-3894
In this paper, we examine the role of the instructor during student-centered approaches, specifically those that are problem-centered, to outline effective strategies that are valuable for facilitating discussions. After describing the role of the instructor in each phase of implementation, from planning to evaluation, we discuss specific strategies for facilitating effective discussions. Strategies identified as being successful in problem-centered discussions included meta- cognitive questioning, peer facilitation, and teacher training, to name a few.
