Developing Active Learners

-Overview-

There are three reasons why students must be prepared for active learning.

  1. For the success of a hybrid learning model, students need to become pro-active self-motivated learners.

  2. Competency-based learning, as advocated by the NEP 2020 requires students to make decisions regarding what, how, and when they want to learn as well as how they want their competencies to be assessed.

  3. Learner-centric education is effective only when students proactively engage in learning experiences.3)


Moving forward the main objective of teachers will be to ensure students' readiness to learn and their active engagement in learning.
