Brown Bag Seminar – Flipped Classroom

Last month, the Office of Instructional Technology hosted a Brown Bag Seminar covering Flipped Classroom. Dr. Terry Trepper, Professor of Psychology, and Dr. Sharon Schleigh, Assistant Professor of Science Education, joined us and shared their successful experiences in flipping their classrooms. Dr. Trepper demonstrated how students’ self-study could be achieved before coming into the class by using adaptive learning materials and strategies developed by a publisher and explained how the face-to-face classes were focused on discussions. Dr. Schleigh shared her strategies of engaging students in group work and discussion. Dr. Schleigh specified that creating a “safe” learning environment is the key to a successful flipped classroom, which will establish an encouraging and open community of collaboration in the class.
