De-centred learning
New Approaches to Teaching for Experienced Staff at Kent

Presented by Dr Stefan Rossbach, School of Politics and International Relations, Social Sciences Faculty Teaching Prize 2017

Given that for some time now, students have had access to mobile, networked devices that allow them to draw on vast quantities of information at any point in time, it is not original any more to suggest that 'the teacher' is no longer the centre of knowledge in classroom situations. However, student expectations and teaching styles (including the design of teaching spaces) seem slow to adapt. This session aims to explore the radical implications and creative potential of 'de-centred' learning, where students are not just recipients or 'consumers' of knowledge, but 'nodal points' in the creation of learning.
