CTL Workshop: The Flipped Classroom: Promises and Concerns
Wednesday, January 30, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Facilitator: Edmund Hansen. The “flipped classroom” is a new term for a not entirely new concept. Instead of lecturing first and applying second, it starts with students reviewing key knowledge in online videos, websites, and readings on their own, and then spending the actual class time working on applications and problem sets. For a brief video intro, see “Flipping the classroom – Simply speaking” (at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26pxh_qMppE). The workshop will discuss options for partially implementing such an approach.
