Learner-centric Learning Experiences

-Overview-

The NEP2020 recommends that experiential learning should be implemented across grades and subjects. Educators should move away from lectures and notes and immerse students in meaningful learning experiences.

Educators must acquire skills to design learner-centric learning experiences that focus on learning outcomes. Such experiences engage students in a series of activities or tasks that scaffold learning and allow students to progress at their own pace to demonstrate mastery.

Learning experiences should be multi-disciplinary and help students to develop problem-solving skills, an understanding of India's culture, and citizenship values.
