Introduction to the Flipped Classroom (CTE691)Export this event to calendar

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 — 9:30 AM to 12:15 PM EST

Location: EV1 241 Notes: Open to faculty (registration is required)

This workshop is currently FULL.

DescriptionThe term "flipped classroom" refers to courses where the traditional components -- lectures and homework -- are reversed; that is, course content is delivered outside of class time (for example, via lectures delivered as podcasts or screencasts) leaving class time free for active learning activities (such as discussions, debates, demonstrations, and so on). This session will present examples of flipped courses from our own and other institutions and identify how flipping a classroom can be part of a blended course design that increases students' engagement and learning. We will demonstrate some current tools that can be used to support the delivery of content outside of class. 

Learning Outcomes. After the session, participants will be able to:

  • identify what makes a class a flipped class
  • explain the advantages and challenges of teaching a flipped class 
  • design a flipped class experience and identify relevant technologies, in-class learning activities, and assessments
  • identify which course-related concepts could be taught more effectively in a flipped class 
Facilitators: Jane Holbrook and Kyle Scholz
 
Note: Part of this workshop will be hands on: participants should bring a laptop PC.  Additionally, note that the workshop offered on Wednesday morning, entitled "Making Screencasts with Camtasia," is a natural complement to this workshop: the Flipped Classroom workshop focuses on pedagogy, while the Camtasia workshop focuses on one of the tools that can help you flip your classroom.
