Disrupting Higher Education with Technological Innovation, at HEASPA Brown Bag, The University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX), Thursday, March 20, 2014:
Charles Eliot’s elective system initiated at Harvard University in the 1890s radically transformed the field of higher education. It is one of only a few truly disruptive innovations to catalyze universal change in how people learn on American college and university campuses. The only other innovation in learning that approaches this scale is another Harvard pedagogy – the Case Study Method, also developed in the late 19th century. Around the same time, one of the world’s most enduring technological innovations was born: the automobile. With thousands of advances since that time, todayâ...

Blended Learning 101, at OnRamps Spring Professional Development Seminar, The University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX), Monday, February 24, 2014:
In this seminar, we will construct an understanding of what blended learning is and what it is not. Participants will generate their own definitions of blended learning and identify elements of their classroom teaching that qualify. We will also collaborate to determine why blended learning is important.
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.
More than Video: Using Innovative Pedagogies to Flip your Classroom, at Weill Cornell Medical College (New York, NY), Thursday, February 20, 2014:
Contrary to popular belief, flipped learning is much more than watching videos and doing "homework" in class. In this hands-on session, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce two research-based flipped methods called Just-in-Time Teaching and 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 three teaching... Read more about More than Video: Using Innovative Pedagogies to Flip your Classroom
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.

Flipping the Classroom 101 - An Introduction to Flipped Learning, at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (Phoenix, AZ), Saturday, January 25, 2014:
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. She will use responses from these activities in the workshop and discuss the why, what, and how of flipped classrooms by confronting and resolving a series common myths about...

How Trap the Boredom Monster...with a Classroom?, at Association of University Interior Designers, The University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX), Tuesday, October 15, 2013:
In this interactive session, we consider three questions: What do current classroom spaces feel like to students and teachers? What do current classroom spaces look like? And what can classroom spaces look and feel like. The flipped classroom is offered as gold-standard approach to 21st century learning. Participants will experience live demonstrations of innovative pedagogies that can be used to facilitate the flipped classroom.
