The teaching philosophy of the new era needs to be constantly updated, including not only teachers' teaching philosophy, but also students' learning philosophy. The relationship between teaching and learning is a major theoretical issue in teaching theory. How to scientifically understand the relationship between teaching and learning is the logical starting point of the whole teaching theoretical system. There are two viewpoints: "learning before teaching" or "learning before teaching". Herbart put forward the "teacher-centered theory", which is a tradition. Tao Xingzhi put forward the idea of "learning before teaching" and advocated student-centered, which is of guiding significance for the renewal of teaching philosophy today. Today's teaching emphasizes the concept of quality-oriented education and "student-centered", but there is still the traditional "teaching-centered". This paper analyzes its value meaning by interpreting the connotation of "learning before teaching", explores the operational mechanism of the transition from traditional "teacher teaching" to the present "student learning", and puts forward the strategy construction to realize the transition from "teacher teaching" to "student learning".
