Faculty Development Session: Flipped Classroom

Faculty Development Session: Flipped Classroom

Date: November 13, 2019 (1:00 PM) - November 13, 2019 (2:00 PM)

Becoming Socrates...Starting with the end in mind

A goal of higher education is to promote the synthesis of information to solve problems. However, time with students in the classroom is often used to teach and relay information. If this is the educational model used by most courses in higher education, when do our students get time to practice problem solving? The purpose of this seminar is to start with the “end in mind” … to discuss how we can use classroom time to help our students think and solve problems using the material we teach.  Dr. Morton will explain and demonstrate the benefits of retrieval, spaced and interleaved practice. He will provide several examples of activities that can be incorporated into the classroom to promote active learning.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the literature of retrieval practice with emphasis on spacing, interleaving and feedback driven metacognition
  • Provide examples of retrieval practice activities and demonstrate how they involve and engage students in the learning process
