The Hermeneutics of Learner-Centered Approaches and Initiatives in the Philippine Basic Education Sector
de Guzman, Allan B.
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v3 n3 p223-241 Jan 2004
This paper highlights how a developing country like the Philippines incarnates a learner-centered approach in its overall education framework. Specifically, key policies and strategies relative to curriculum development, pedagogical issues, educational innovation and evaluation, professional development of teachers and school-community dynamics are discussed on the basis of the platform of hermeneutics of retrieval, the hermeneutics of the actual and the hermeneutics of the potential. "In a world that is constantly changing, the most important skill to acquire now is learning how to learn." (John Naisbitt, 2000)
