Flipped and Active Learning Basics

Description

If you have heard some of the recent buzz about “flipped learning” and want to learn more—this workshop is for you. Obstacles to learning abound, particularly technology distractions, unprepared students, disengaged students, multiple levels of content mastery among students in the same course, and students missing class. Flipped learning is a method for incorporating active learning into the classroom to combat these obstacles. Most importantly this method of teaching leverages technology to enhance classroom human interaction and creates opportunities for active engagement in learning.

In this workshop, Janet Hudson offers a sound rationale for flipped and active learning and practical strategies for getting started. She also discusses the challenges associated with this method and explores strategies for addressing them.
