Paradigm shift in teaching
It is common in our schools and colleges for teachers to deliver boring lectures. Whatever the subject, instructors tend to use antiquated lecture methods.
Learning occurs best when the students remain at the core of the teaching-learning process, interacting and playing a significant role in the process themselves. Each student has different individual needs. Some may have a flair for writing while others may be better with mathematics, etc. Nobody should be labelled as a fool or as a superman possessing all kinds of intelligence.
A good facilitator must address every single student's demand of learning and focus on their special inclinations and interests – an admittedly herculean task. But this is how we can evolve from archaic teaching methods and correctly guide the future luminaries.
