Teachers have different teaching styles, depending on their philosophy of teaching and the context in which they teach. These styles may be categorised as teacher-centred or learner-centred. Billie Hara (2009) discusses the meaning of these terms in the article: Teacher-Centered vs. Student-Centered Pedagogy.
However, it is not as simple as this. Eric Gill (2013) describes several different styles of teaching in the article: What is Your Teaching Style? 5 Effective Teaching Methods for Your Classroom. They include:
- Authority, or lecture style
- Demonstrator, or coach style
- Facilitator, or activity style
- Developer, or group style
- Hybrid, or blended style.
