Friday, March 25, 2016
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Farish Hall, Kiva Room
A light lunch will be provided.
Guest Speaker: Dr. Julie Schell, University of Texas - Austin.
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 of common myths about flipped teaching.
