Abstract: The professional and academic development of staff has significant contribution in making the education system effective. While student focused learning has been advocated in higher education in recent years, teacher focused learning styles may be still dominant in actual practice in the universities. Stemming from the constructivist sight of learning, a “learnercentered approach” has been encouraged in higher education throughout the last few decades (McCombs & Whistler, 1997; Weimer, 2002; Pillay, 2002)1. In the twenty first century world is undergoing many transitions so as teaching practices too. Learning and lectures delivery activities are also undergoing the process of paradigm shift. This research paper has focused upon determining the need for the change from teacher focused learning (TFL) to student focused learning (SFL). Teacher focused learning has actually emphases on attainment of knowledge outside the framework in which it will be used and Knowledge is communicated from professor to students. On the other hand student focused learning imparts freedom of self-learning to student. By opting this methodology Students have been involved in knowledge construction through data gathering and constructing problem out of solution that’s completely opposite of traditional learning approach where student construct solution out of problem, so synthesizing and blending information inversely and integrating it with the broad-spectrum skills of analysis, statement framing, critical thinking, and finally problem solving. So this teaching pedagogy is leading towards overall development of student.
