Active learning techniques have been shown to improve the classroom experience, leading to higher student success rates and greater student engagement.
As an increasing number of higher education faculty apply the flipped classroom model to their courses, they’re discovering that although the idea of a flip is straightforward, the model is easy to get wrong.
An effective flip requires careful preparation—but the format doesn’t have to be tech-heavy.
In fact, faculty can improve student success rates, engagement, and learning with low-cost, low-tech strategies that are easy to implement. This online seminar, The Technology-Free Approach to Flipping the Classroom, will show you how.
The flipped model puts greater responsibility for learning on the students while providing them with more room to experiment in the classroom. This leads to a shift in priorities, allowing classroom time to move from merely covering material to working toward mastery of it.
As a result of this seminar, you gain a new perspective on what it means to flip the classroom, leading to revitalized teaching. This seminar not only explores concrete strategies for engaging students in the flipped classroom, but it also delves into why technology-free approaches are important. You will better understand how to do the following:
- Organize student-led activities to encourage greater communication in the classroom
- Create a dynamic session devoted to learning through hands-on work
- Integrate unplugged methods of student engagement into flipped and active classroom learning environments
- Lean on tools such as sticky notes, flip charts, whiteboards, and dice to inspire new ways of thinking
The flipped classroom model challenges instructors to create learning experiences in which students have the freedom to apply, analyze, and evaluate course content during class time.
The question is: How do you continue finding innovative teaching strategies and tools to engage students in this way?
Although some creativity is required to plan a flip, the process doesn’t have to be intimidating. This seminar demonstrates a number of simple strategies that motivate students to interact with the material and engage with one another. You will learn the following:
- Discover a range of unplugged teaching strategies used to engage students
- Learn to identify opportunities for unplugging devices and creating a tech-free learning experience in the classroom
- Master simple ways to integrate unplugged flipped methods into your course
- Understand the benefits to including unplugged teaching and learning strategies in flipped course design
- Developing new strategies and ideas for the flipped classroom
- Increasing student engagement with unplugged methods
- Integrating unplugged methods into flipped and active learning classrooms
- Using everyday tools to inspire higher-level thinking
- Expanding the definition of the flipped classroom
This seminar is intended for faculty and instructors interested in a role change in the classroom. The flipped learning environment requires teachers to give up their front-of-class position in favor of a more collaborative and cooperative contribution to the teaching process.
