Flipped Classroom

This workshop will introduce participants to the concept of Flipped Learning: Where educators are actively transferring the responsibility and ownership of learning to the students. Flipped learning happens when the instructor’s lecture is delivered to students via short videos before the class time. Then traditional class time is used for active problem solving, discussion and one-to-one or small group tutoring with the instructor. Students can watch the short video lectures as many times as they wish to grasp the content and then come to class ready to jump into the learning, ask questions, work on collaborative projects and explore the content further. During this workshop, participants will create a short lecture using the USF Echo360 Personal Capture software or Educreations and discuss best practices for flipping a class. Prior to the workshop, please view the TED Talk about flipping the classroom by Salman Khan at http://www.ted.com/talks/salman_khan_let_s_use_video_to_reinvent_education.html Also, plan to be ready to record a short video of one of your course concepts in a 1-2 minute video (bring a PowerPoint file if you would like to use one in your lecture).
