Creating Learner Centered Classrooms

COABE 2003- Commission on Adult Basic Education National Conference- Portland, Oregon

Instructors: Maria Rosales and Marcia Campos

Transitional Studies instructors Maria Rosales and Marcia Campos presented the workshop Creating Learner Centered Classrooms at COABE 2003-Commission on Adult Basic Education National Conference-Portland, Oregon.

COABE-The Commission on Adult Basic Education - was created in 1971 as a respond to the rapid growth in Adult Basic Education within the Adult Education Association (AEA). COABE was called upon to fulfill leadership in research coordination and professional development in non-public adult basic and literacy programs that were rapidly growing in the 70s. Nevertheless, COABE gained full independency in 2000.

Transitional Studies instructors Maria Rosales and Marcia Campos shared their experiences with incorporating SCANS, EFF, PBL and technology in the curriculum at City College of San Francisco. Moreover, they shared lesson plans developed by CCSF ESL and Transitional Studies faculty under the California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office Grant- Project VOICE.

The idea behind this workshop was to model a class that would combine EFF, SCANS, PBL and technology-oriented activities where the participants would have an active role in revising and/or discovering these educational trends. This workshop gave the participants the opportunity to explore how to create a more learner-centered learning environment allowing for student reflection and input.
