As traditional ideas about pedagogy and library involvement in student learning grow in complexity, librarians are exploring new instructional approaches. Student-centered learning is a guiding principle that calls for a shift in the focus of instruction from the teacher to the needs and knowledge of students. This approach requires librarians to be intentional about centering classroom activities on student learning.
