UNIT 1: Fundamental Principles of the Learner-Centered Paradigm of Education
Pages 4

Unit 1 provides a broad yet shallow view of the learner-centered paradigm of education and training. Chapter 1 presents an “epitome” of design theories for this emerging paradigm. Because decisions about how to teach in this paradigm are inextricably intertwined with decisions about how to test and even with decisions about what to teach, this chapter describes design principles for all these aspects of education and training. Chapters 2-5 then present an elaboration on the principles in Chapter 1, and Unit 2 provides yet another level of elaboration.
