Abstract: Learner-centered teaching and learning has an impact on the learning process as a whole. The teacher’s role changes more to guiding and supporting the learning process, instead of lecturing and supplying learners with the right answers. A variety of hands-on activities and different authentic learning environments are required in order to promote successful learning.
