Workshop on Flipping the Classroom

Classes and Workshops, Free Events

"Flipping the Classroom: Strategies for Ensuring Students Complete Out-of-Class Assignments." Arguably, the most talked about teaching strategies in higher education today are “flipping the classroom” approaches. Flipping typically refers to approaches that require students to significantly engage with instructional content before coming to class. Class time is then spent engaging in activities other than traditional lecturing. One of the greatest challenges of this model is figuring out how instructors can motivate students to engage with the out-of-class assignments so that they are prepared to engage in active learning when actually in class. This workshop will provide concrete strategies for meeting this challenge and will include hands-on activities regarding crafting excellent questions for short, pre-class quizzes and maximizing the benefits of briefing writing assignments. Student motivation, entrance tickets and other related strategies also will be explored.
