Event: Flipped Classroom Roundtable
Date: Friday, January 18th
Time: 1:30pm -2:30pm
Location: Stokes 102 at Haverford College
In the flipped classroom, the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Your students review lectures or other instructive materials before class and work on homework assignments & projects during the class.
Professor Liz McCormack (physics at Bryn Mawr College) has been experimenting with flipped learning this semester … instead of lecturing to introduce new content, she had students get material from readings with the help of podcast reading guides. They then worked on problems and addressed questions during class. She’ll report on what she learned about this approach–what worked well, what didn’t work so well, and plans for the next time she teaches the course.
If you are currently using a flipped classroom model, or if you are interested in learning how students can benefit from the flipped classroom, please join us. If you would like to attend the roundtable, please contact the Instructional Technology and Training group (firstname.lastname@example.org).
