Principles of
Student-Centered Learning

The Minnesota Learner-Centered Network has adopted these seven principles - researched and defined by our partners at Education Evolving - to help describe, identify, and support practices we believe are core tenets of Student-Centered Learning Environments.


While the principles provide a common language, we believe none are prescriptive - all environments must be designed to meet the needs of the community it serves.
