Practices for Engaging Students: Technology that Supports the Flipped Classroom

Tuesday, October 16 2012 @ 4:20 PM - 5:15 PM

This is part three of a three-part workshop introducing teaching strategies that may be especially helpful in large enrollment classes.

Students in flipped classrooms focus on content acquisition outside scheduled classroom time, then use in-class time for the more cognitively difficult work of processing that content. Just in Time Teaching and Peer Instruction practices provide a number of strategies that fit well with this model. In this workshop we will look at technologies that can support and enhance both the in-class and out-of-class portions of the flipped classroom. These can include screencasting, Blackboard tools like Journals or Adaptive Release, collaborative writing spaces like Google Docs, or a number of online specialty tools for specific activities.
