Other events...
The flipped classroom is a term that is widely used to describe almost any class structure that provides pre-recorded input materials linked to in-class activities. In this pedagogical model, the typical pattern of lectures and activities is reversed. Thus,lectures are provided through pre-recorded materials which students access at home, while class time is devoted to exercises, projects and discussions. The notion of the flipped classroom draws on the concepts of active learning, student engagement,and hybrid course design. The value of the flipped classroom is in transforming previous transmissive lecture time into social constructivist workshops where students inquire into lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, interact with each other in hands-on activities, and discuss any aspects of assessment. In order to demonstrate the flipped classroom model and to enhance discussion, all RSVP’ed participants will be sent introductory information prior to the seminar.
