WINTER TERM 2017
Advanced Topics in Flipped Classrooms: Exploring the Hurdles You Jump as You Flip a Classroom
facilitated by Jane Mackie, Trent/Fleming School of Nursing
Thurs, March 23, 2017 from 1:30-3:00 pm
Flipping the classroom is an active teaching strategy intended to enhance meaningful learning for students. Effectively flipping the classroom requires an intensive effort by the instructor – clear learning objectives must be established, and activities must reflect those learning objectives to ensure learning of content. Students must understand their role and prepare for the class in advance to ensure that they fulfill their own learning goals. While these are two of the key challenges for successful implementation of the flipped classroom, other smaller issues can arise. In this session I will present some of my own strategies and we can apply them to your classroom. I also hope to learn new strategies from others, no matter where you are on the curve of flipping your classroom.
