This summer, the Office of Information Technology’s Academic Technologies (AT) will facilitate a Flipped Classroom Studio for faculty.
This five-week Studio will provide participants with assistance and collegial support to begin the process of flipping their course, starting with a single class session or module. The Studio will meet for five consecutive Wednesdays from 9 am-12 pm, beginning July 24 and continuing through August 21, in the Voinovich Seminar Room, 513 Alden Library.
Applications are being accepted online through April 26.
The Flipped Classroom is a teaching model that inverts traditional teaching methods. Course “lectures” are published as video podcasts and 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.
