College Success: A Fresh Look at Differentiated Instruction and Other Student-Centered Strategies
Lightweis, Susan K.
College Quarterly, v16 n3 Sum 2013
This essay addresses the success of differentiated instruction (DI) as a student-centered teaching strategy in grades K-12 and how it can be used in higher education. Most college instructors deliver instruction through lectures, a teacher-centered strategy. A review of research studies in higher education demonstrated students achieve higher academic success when DI is used. The author examines reasons why DI is not implemented in more college courses. The author explores other student-centered strategies to help students achieve academic success. Finally, the author discusses college instructors who promote various student-centered strategies to help learning and achievement for all students.
