One of the more buzz-worthy concepts in higher education right now, a “flipped classroom” moves the lectures outside the classroom to online and moves the formerly out-of-class assignments into the classroom, where teachers can guide students as they complete them. Last year, a Symposium session on flipped classrooms was so popular, there was an overflow crowd out into the hallway! The people spoke, and we listened, so this year instead of one flipped classroom session, we will have an entire track featuring four great flipped classroom sessions. Here they are, and click on the link to get more information:
- Flipping the Foreign Language Classroom
- The Students Flip the Classroom in First-Semester Biochemistry
- Flipping the Classroom: Is It Worth the Hype?
- How Social Media Affects Student Engagement: Applying Social Network Analysis to Evaluate and Compare Student Interaction Patterns
