ETS Talk 63: Flipping the Classroom
Flipping the Classroom has gotten a lot of attention recently. The basic idea is that students listen to lectures and otherwise prepare for class on their own time and then use class time for problem sets, debates, discussions, collaborative writing, etc… The components of this idea aren’t new, but technologies such as podcasting, lecture capture, and recorded problem sets (e.g. Khan Academy) have made this a lot easier. This week, I sat down with Chris Millet, Hannah Inzko, and Gary Chinn to discuss what they know about Flipping the Classroom. Our discussion includes topics such as technologies that make this easier, active learning strategies, classroom design, student engagement, accessibility, and specific examples of faculty who are flipping part or all of their courses.
