    Assessment: The Secret to Great Teaching, at Universidad de Diego Portales, LASPAU affiliated with Harvard University (Cambridge, MA), Thursday, April 4, 2013:
    Open the doors to any classroom across the globe and you will observe an almost universal model for the evaluation of student learning. Instructors stand at the front of a lecture hall, teach content, students (at least we hope) attempt to learn that content, and then instructors evaluate that content learning through traditional assessments such as multiple-choice exams, quizzes, or research papers. Most of these conventional approaches to evaluation are one-dimensional and not aligned with overarching learning goals that relate to competencies students actually need to progress successfully...

    Flipped classrooms 101: An introduction to the flipped classroom, at CSM Faculty Development Workshops, Rowan University (Glassboro, NJ), Friday, April 12, 2013:
    Instructors all over the globe are turning their students' worlds around by flipping their classrooms. In a flipped class, teachers move information coverage out of the lecture hall so that they can better leverage in-class time to address student difficulties and misconceptions. In this interactive session, Dr. Julie Schell will flip the workshop by providing brief introductory, pre-workshop activities to participants. During the workshop, she will discuss the why, what, and how of flipped classrooms by confronting and resolving a series of common myths about flipped teaching. Participants...

    Peer Instruction 2.0: Beyond a 90's pedagogy, at CSM Faculty Development Workshops, Rowan University (Glassboro, NJ), Friday, April 12, 2013
    Peer Instruction (PI) is a research-based, interactive teaching method that helps instructors engagestudents in and out of class. The centerpiece of Peer Instruction is the ConcepTest, a short conceptual question that helps elicit, uncover and resolve student misconceptions. “Turn to your neighbor” is the classic catch phrase of PI methodology, whereby after a brief mini-lecture in class, teachers encourage students to think about a question, vote on their answer, and then turn to their neighbor to engage, rather than sit passively in a lecture. In this presentation, we examine three big... Read more about Peer Instruction 2.0: Beyond a 90's pedagogy
    Innovative Flipped Classrooms, at Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY), Friday, April 26, 2013:
    Simply putting lectures online is one way to flip a class, but it is not the best way. In this workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce two research-based strategies teachers can use to design learning environments that boost student engagement with subject-matter both in and outside of class. Attendees will experience live demonstrations of one flipped class technique called Peer Instruction, developed at Harvard University and backed by 20 years of research, that can be used in any discipline and with any class size. We will also test out a new classroom response system that facilitates... Read more about Innovative Flipped Classrooms

    Flip Class Question Design Workshop, at ATL Summer Teaching Institute, NC AT & T State University (Greensboro, NC), Tuesday, May 14, 2013:
    Questions are the heart of engaging students in a flipped class. In this workshop, we will collaborate to discover the elements of an effective question. We will practice answering different question types as a large group and work individually and in pairs on a flipped classroom case study to learn promising practices for developing effective questions. At the end of the workshop, we will also apply our learning by trying to write a few new questions.
    How to help people learn, at CRAFT Professional Development Institute, University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX), Thursday, May 23, 2013:
    Advances in cognitive science have changed what we know about how people learn, but pedagogical approaches have not adapted to use this knowledge to help people learn better. In this workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will demo three simple tips educators can use to catalyze learning in any educational context.
    Evidence-Based Instructional Strategies that Improve College Student Success, at CSSP Technical Assistance Workshop for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, University of Houston (Houston, TX), Thursday, May 30, 2013
    One day workshop on increasing the use of evidence-based pedagogies to improve student success in postsecondary education in Texas over three sessions. Session 1 provided interactive training on Flipped Classrooms, Just-in-Time Teaching and Peer Instruction. Session 2, a working session featuring a case study of evidence-based instructional strategies at scale; Session 3, an instructional hack-a-thon to identify barriers and invent clever solutions to increasing faculty adoption of innovative teaching methods at individual institutions.
    Using Clickers with Peer Instruction, at Turning Technologies Webinar (Austin, TX), Tuesday, October 8, 2013:
    Peer Instruction is a teaching method that leverages the power of cutting-edage learning technologies, such as clickers, to transform learning. The centerpiece of Peer Instruction is the ConcepTest, a short interactive question that helps uncover student misconceptions. In this presentation, we will discuss three big questions frequently posed by clicker and Peer Instruction users: Should I ask my students to vote on ConcepTests first, before turning to their neighbor to discuss? Should I show my students the results of their responses, before I cue them to turn to their neighbors? And, how... Read more about Using Clickers with Peer Instruction

    Flipping your Classroom with Peer Instruction and Learning Catalytics, at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (Phoenix, AZ), Saturday, January 25, 2014:
    Flipped learning is much more than watching videos and doing homework in class. In this hands-on session, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce one research-based flipped method called Peer Instruction. A primary goal of Peer Instruction is to radically transform students’ in-class experiences. Originally developed for use in college physics at Harvard University, thousands of teachers currently use Peer Instruction in many disciplines with many different age groups, all over the world. Participants of this session will learn how flipped learning with Peer Instruction works, participate in a live...

    Using Questions to Catalyze Learning: Question Design Workshop, at Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY), Thursday, February 20, 2014:
    Questions are the heart of engaging students in any classroom. In this workshop, we will collaborate to discover the elements of effective questions. We will practice answering different question types as a large group via a classroom response system called Learning Catalytics and contrast that experience with other classroom response systems, such as flashcards and clickers. Finally, we will work individually and in pairs on a case study to learn promising practices for developing effective questions.
