The Unholy Grail: Debunking Learner Centredness

Piotr Steinbrich

Summary

Learner centredness is one of the key notions of modern language teaching. In this talk I will argue that it is not only overestimated, but also hard, if not impossible, to implement. I will present some classroom scenarios and practical activities that can be used in the secondary classroom to demonstrate how to meander between the teacher and learner zones.
