# Student-centred learning

**Student-centered learning** is an approach to

education focusing on the needs of the students, rather than other those of others involved in the educational process, such as teachers and administrators. This approach has many implications for the design of curriculum, course content, and interactivity of courses. For instance, a student-centered course may address the needs of a particular student audience to learn how to solve some job-related problems using some aspects of

mathematics. In contrast, a course focused on learning mathematics might chose areas of mathematics to cover and methods of teaching which would be considered irrelevant by the student.
