Feb. 6 Technology Trends forum to focus on ‘Flipping the Classroom’
Technology Trends—Flipping the Classroom is Wednesday, Feb. 6, from noon to 1:30 p.m., in the Memorial Union River Valley Room.
You may have heard the buzz about “flipping” the classroom, and are wondering what it means. Flipping is changing from the “in-class lecture, out-of-class homework” model to one where students “attend” lectures online and spend class time on case studies, group projects, complex problem sets, and other collaborative work. They still do come to class to participate in active learning and their classroom community. You don’t need to jump into a complete flip, but can experiment with small changes to find the right configuration for your classroom. Clare Francis flipped her classroom and will share her experiences.
Please register no later than noon Monday, Feb. 4, to guarantee a lunch.
