The Flipped Classroom Studio – Spring 2015

Interested in an innovative teaching strategy for your course?

This five-week Studio will provide participants with assistance and collegial support to begin flipping a course starting with one class session. The studio meets face-to-face four times over a five-week period as listed below: March 13, 20, 27, April 10 on Friday mornings 9:00am – 12:00 noon on the Athens campus. The fourth week (April 3) we will NOT meet as a group. This time is set aside for participants to work independently on their course. The studio is facilitated by Academic Technologies – AT, from the Office of Information Technology.

The Flipped Classroom is a teaching model that inverts traditional teaching methods. Course “lectures” may be published as video podcasts or learning modules that students view online before class. This allows class time to be spent on activities such as problem-based work that focuses on higher order thinking, improves student engagement and increases meaningful interaction between students and teachers. It is called the flipped classroom  because what used to be homework is now done in class and delivering content is now done at home via teacher-created videos.

Academic Technologies will admit fifteen participant’s courses in this Studio in an attempt to include various colleges, course levels and course sizes. Preference will be given to registrants who are able to commit to all four sessions and willing to dedicate time outside of the event to the development process. Participants should plan to spend 3-4 hours per week on homework and preparations.
