Here is a personal thought on what "learner-centered" could mean: learning is so much easier and more natural than teaching that teachers should focus on developing and nurturing their student's interest in learning.
"[...] the timing of computers and networks is rigidly coupled to regular cycles of an underlying clock; the wide variation in impulse timings in neuronal systems, often with a strong apparently random component, contrasts markedly with the temporal regimen in these computational devices."
