Margaret Ann Hartford, University of Texas at El Paso


This study explored core conditions in student centered educational settings by utilizing an ethnomethodological design to examine the experiences of self-selected educators throughout the United States. Through surveys and follow up interviews, educators reported their professional experiences regarding the core conditions in student centered learning as outlined by Carl Rogers and the impact these conditions played in the quality of educational experiences for the educators and their students in diverse settings. This study was also concerned with educators’ self reports regarding their training and education regarding core conditions in student centered learning environments. This paper shares with readers a literary review of previous and current material on this subject matter, as well as the methodology, research findings, and discussion of the implications. ^
