45 min Session
Audience Focus: Everyone
Flipping your classroom turns the idea of a traditional classroom upside down. Students watch lecture videos at home and then complete practice work in the class. I was one of those students who attended traditional classrooms and when I would go home, I would pull out my homework and work until I was eventually stuck on problems and I would go back to school with my homework only partially completed or done wrong. In the flipped classroom, students still get the content discussion through the video lectures as homework, however, have the teacher at their disposal when they are working on mastery of the material. In this session, I will share what I have learned in flipping my classroom. Copresented by Melinda Clark.
