On May 8 at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed presents a FREE WEBINAR, with editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman who will explore a range of ideas and opinions about the flipped classroom.
The idea of the “flipped classroom” has taken off in higher education in
recent years – and it is used to describe a wide variety of teaching
styles. What they have in common is that they largely replace the
lecture. For material that might have been delivered in lecture format
previously, online instruction is provided in advance of the class. This
allows for time in class to be used in different ways – group work,
discussion and other forms of highly engaged participatory learning
become the norm.
Discussion of the flipped classroom thus is a
mix of teaching with technology – and teaching without technology. It’s
about pedagogy, learning and the role of the instructor. And in an era
in which educators and policy makers alike want to promote student
learning and achievement (not just showing up in class), the flipped
classroom has become a key strategy.
