Education - Statement

LEARNING*****CENTERED EDUCATION PERSPECTIVE As a faculty member, I would try to incorporate learning-centered college concepts into my classroom as much ***** possible and in particularly in any manner that facilitated student motivation directly. Toward that end, I would encourage *****s, including first semester freshmen, to consider every elective course as an opportunity ***** prepare them for their future. ********** ***** regard, I would counsel students to consider the relev*****ce of every ***** with respect to anticipated career goals; in the case of students ***** little idea of the ultimate direction ***** ***** goals, I would suggest that they view every academic course as an opportunity ***** consider potential are***** of related *****terest. In principle, I ***** caution against selecting courses without at least some very general idea of what relevance or potential relevance it may have with respect to future professional ***** advanced educational goals.

Ideally, I hope to have the opportunity ***** incorporate elements of Gardner's Multiple Intelligence approach by introducing ***** students to ***** concept of acquiring relevant knowledge through a bro*****der means of information transmission than the traditional passive learning in the lecture-based model. While primary ***** secondary school are the optimal settings for the fullest incorporation of ***** principles, college students can be *****d to explore different types of media ***** help identify their greatest strengths. All too often, ***** never have ***** opportunity to ***** the possibility that alternate modes of instruction might increase *****ir retention. For example, I would encourage students ***** propose alternate sources of comparable subject matter as a means of *****ing untapped learning strengths. In some cases, students ***** have the first opportunity to explore the potential ***** suspected alternate modes of ***** ***** potential ***** *****.

*****, I would consider allowing ***** to propose a legitimate video-based documentary on a topic ordinarily presented through traditi*****al textbook and lecture presentation about Cold War geopolitics could substitute a qualifying video documentary in preparation for objective tests. Other students may wish to explore the prospect of learning the same material from audio tapes where such material exists.

In my opinion, the benefits ***** such an approach within the learning-centered environment is twofold: (1) it stimulates exploration capable of revealing greater academic potential than achievable for particular students through ***** more limited traditional approach, and (2) it could conceivably help students whose mediocre academic performance belies their raw intelligence, as measured ***** diagnostic ***** testing. In my humble *****, the near-exclusive focus of ***** education on textbook-based learning allows a substantial number ***** students with considerable intellectual potential ***** fall ***** the proverbial cracks of the modern educational system. In many cases, students fail to reach their academic potential by virtue of their ***** relative ability to learn through different modes of instruction and elements of practical experience.

Ultimately, I view my most important function as an educa*****r to be the encouragement of my students to discover *****ir ***** learning mech*****ism, especially to the extent aspects ***** it lie outside the
