WAYS OF PROMOTING A STUDENT - ORIENTED EDUCATION

The complex changes in the contemporary society and the culture of change that we are experiencing nowadays presuppose a new way of performing education. Traditional pedagogy, ex cathedra, no longer meets the needs of pupils and students educated today. A teacher's discourse that encourages the accumulation and reproduction of knowledge by the pupils/students is inadequate to the real needs of our society and the nowadays individuals. Stress should be laid on encouraging the learners' autonomy, creativity and involvement with a view to helping them create and develop their own resources. The saying "to learn how to learn" has become today more relevant than ever. Keywords: student, education, competence, performance.
