Just Flip It: From the Front Lines of the Flipped Classroom
Tuesday, May 21, 2013
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CDT (convert to your time zone)
It’s easy to picture a traditional classroom – a lecturing professor with rows of students watching, listening and taking notes.
But that age-old model is turning a cartwheel in some of the best classrooms in academia. And chances are someone in your department is already flipping their classroom.
Professor Ralph Welsh of Clemson University started experimenting with this technology-driven pedagogy three years ago, redesigning and refining his courses over time and putting the onus on the student to come to class already having watched the lectures and ready to engage in conversation.
During that time he’s met and overcome challenges and reset his teaching style to rave reviews from students. Join Ralph as he presents a how-to guide for introducing flipped instruction, and shares lessons learned along the way including:
- How to overcome the biggest challenges of the flipped classroom, including managing student expectations
- How to evolve a curriculum by taking in feedback, evaluating it and re-introducing new methods into the classroom
- Tips on how to educate your colleagues on your new workload and get your department on board with what you’re doing
