The teacher as manager of the learning environment.


Teaching is more than transmitting a certain body of knowledge to the learner; it is motivating the learner to be responsible for meeting his own learning needs. In order to do this, the teacher must be aware of the principles of learning, the learning preference styles of the student, and be knowledgeable of all the methods of teaching. The attitude of the teacher is extremely important in achieving the goal of students becoming independent learners. He must have faith in the student's ability, promote a trusting relationship, act as a facilitator and resource person, and be willing to take risks and change himself. Instead of viewing the teacher as a lecturer, he is viewed as a manager of the learning environment, and by utilizing a variety of teaching methods, hopefully, the personal learning needs of the student can be met, and while learning occurs, it may even be fun.
