1. 5 Characteristics of a student centered learning environment: * Enables students to attain learning freedoms (Curran, 2015, p. 75) * Provides students with self-empowerment * Deepen their commitment to learn * Offers the opportunity to redefine themselves * Provides ability to acquire knowledge without distractions from peers

2. Examples of Characteristics of a Student Centered Learning Environment: Students can log in 24/7 and post comments, create discussions, and post assignments; students can send instructors emails and gain responses in 24 hour timelines; and students can conduct research on student's discussion post and provide additional links to other resources

3. 3 Benefits of a Student Centered-Learning Environment: "Motivate students to want to learn" (Schroeder, 2012, p. 220); can improve interaction skills through meaningful engagement; enable the integration of concepts derived from coursework into personal careers and fieldwork

4. 3 Drawbacks of a Student Centered-Learning Environment: lack of face-to-face connection with peers and instructor; low impact of absorption from the overall learning experience, low ability of “encouraging active participation can be difficult” (University of Queensland, 2016, para 2).

5. 5 Characteristics of Instructor-Centered Learning Environments: engages students in the hard messy work of learning; offers explicit skill instruction, encourages students to reflect on the instruction their learning and absorb what they learn, and motivates students with independent control over learning development processes; and encourages collaboration

6. 3 Examples of Instructor Centered Learning Environments: teacher offers immediate feedback and comments to a student’s response during class discussion; teacher can illustrate diagrams on the white board and allow students to aid in developing the charts for that diagram; evokes students to better analyze their assignment responses and ideas

7. 3 Benefits of an Instructor-Centered Learning Environment: “Create an environment for deeper learning” (Blumberg, 2016, p.18). Offers ingredients for life-long learning; and fosters communication between students

8. 3 Drawbacks of an Instructor-Centered Learning Environment: Difficult to maintain academic standards; drastic changes in the development of assessments and their presentation platforms; and operating under a limited standard of available resources (e.g. books, images, video files).

9. 3 Examples of Benefits of Instructor-Centered Learning Environments: gaining immediate help with course work; listening to an actual person provide lectures and examples of topics of focus; and students can develop better relations with instructors that can last a life time.

10. 3 Examples of Drawbacks of Instructor-Centered Learning Environments: learning institution wants to implement a new assessment that the instructor doesn’t completely have the skills to administer; inability to modify personal and professional timelines for in class learning; and students grow depended upon the instructors help and not willing to go the extra mile to achieve their own learning success.
