The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning will host "Active Learning Strategies for the Flipped Classroom: A Mini-Workshop" from 3 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in seminar room 124 of the Center for Global Citizenship. Registration for this workshop can be done online.
What would you do with your class time if you didn't have to lecture? That question is at the heart of the reason faculty are attracted to the flipped classroom model (reversing what is typically done in the classroom with what students do on their own outside of class time) and concerned about it at the same time.
In this mini-workshop, participants will examine active learning strategies to help structure small group work and discussion for the flipped classroom. Participants are encouraged to bring course syllabi and come prepared to work on a course plan. Note that this session does not cover technology such as Tegrity for creating lectures.
