Notes: This workshop is part of the Focus on Teaching Week offerings through CTE. Open to faculty (registration is required).
Description: In a flipped classroom students engage with lectures or other materials outside of class to prepare for an active learning experience in the classroom. This workshop is intended for instructors interested in the flipped classroom model of instruction who are seeking to learn more about this instruction technique and in particular how to assess it. Often when instructors are planning to flip a class they focus all of their attention on planning the activities that the students will do in class and on what the students will do online to prepare for that active learning in class. These two aspects require ample consideration, and there exist many possibilities as to how these will be assessed. The focus of the workshop will be on these two aspects of assessment and how to effectively design an activity for the flipped classroom, and you should be able to formulate your own flipped classroom assessment strategies for a course you are currently teaching, or would like to teach.
Participants will be introduced to a four-step model for constructing their own assessment activities in the flipped classroom, focusing primarily on the stages which consider the assessment of online and in class activities. To establish the necessary tools to follow this model, a variety of assessment techniques will be introduced, and participants will have the opportunity to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these techniques in relation to their course, resulting in the design of a new flipped classroom activity and its accompanying assessment technique.
NOTE: Please come prepared with a course in mind that you have already flipped, or would like to flip in the future.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
- Demonstrate a basic understanding of the flipped classroom model and how to implement it
- Distinguish between various in-class and out-of-class assessment techniques applicable to the flipped classroom
- Formulate optimal flipped classroom assessment strategies for a course you are currently teaching, or would like to teach
