Abstract

A focus on learning and the application of learning means that the practice of teaching must be learner-centred, flexible and meaningful. Learning is a voluntary activity, and each learner comes to learning with their own understandings, values, assumptions, learning preferences and motivations. Knowledge, understanding and skills are negotiated and developed in a social setting - through interacting with peers, information, teachers and the broader community. Teaching and learning practices that provide opportunities for social learning; that place learning in relevant and meaningful contexts; that provide supportive learning environments; and that value and recognise diversity provide dynamic engagement and deeper learning for developing communicative skills.
