    Learner-centered assessment on college campuses: Shifting the focus from teaching to learning.
    Huba, M.E. & Freed, J.E.
    Allyn & Bacon
    In the first chapters of this book, the authors encourage college and university professors to reconsider their traditional teacher-centered paradigm of teaching and to adopt a learning-centered approach to classroom interaction. They devote the rest of their book to describing practical techniques instructors can use to make learning more focused on the needs of students. The reader will find many specific and useful examples of how to make their teaching more learning-centered.
