Academic Transformation Speaker's Series, University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX)
In a flipped classroom, instructors typically move information coverage out of the class so that that they can better leverage in-class time to address student misunderstandings and misconceptions about subject matter. The most basic iteration of a flipped class is pre-recording lectures on key concepts for students and putting them online for viewing and engagement (e.g., annotation) before class. In this workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce a set of more advanced web-based instructional tools faculty can use to design learning environments that facilitate student engagement with subject-matter both in and outside of class. The workshop will feature a live demo of a new, web-based classroom response system.
