7 Things You Should Know About Flipped Classrooms | EDUCAUSE

7 Things You Should Know About Flipped Classrooms | EDUCAUSE | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. The notion of a flipped classroom draws on such concepts as active learning, student engagement, hybrid course design, and course podcasting. The value of a flipped class is in the repurposing of class time into a workshop where students can inquire about lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in hands-on activities. Although implementing a flipped classroom places different demands on faculty and forces students to adjust their expectations, the model has the potential to bring about a distinctive shift in priorities—from merely covering material to working toward mastery of it.

The "7 Things You Should Know About..." series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues.

In addition to the "7 Things You Should Know About…" briefs, you may find other ELI resources useful in addressing teaching, learning, and technology issues at your institution.

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

A great post by Adam Peck, dean of student affairs at Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.

 

"Students today have unprecedented access to information. According to educator Karl Fisch, in one week of reading The New York Times, an individual will encounter more information than people in the 18th century would have had access to during the entire course of their lives.

 

It is not surprising that in this atmosphere, students appear to be growing increasingly dogmatic and are less able to engage in civil discourse with others with whom they disagree. Perhaps this is because they cannot accurately explain what people who oppose them actually believe. In truth, they often lack consistency in their own beliefs as well.......

 

In summary, despite the tremendous educational potential of the information age, students seem to be less prepared to critically evaluate information or determine and defend what they believe. Colleges and universities need to find ways to leverage this resource to create the kind of learning demanded by our changing times."

Strategies for innovation in post-secondary education

Strategies for innovation in post-secondary education | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

Love this post by Tony Bates who adds a 6th to the list of strategies offered by Joshua Kim (from Inside Higher Ed post of 6 Feb 2012):

"1.Embrace that the Smartest Person on Campus is the Campus. (In other words, involve the whole campus through communication and collaboration)
2. Develop a Common Language Around Innovation: make sure everyone understands what innovation is and what it takes
3. Support the Core While Running Lots of Experiments
4. Practice Collaboration by Difference: put together people with different perspectives
5. Invest in a Continued Conversation: build mechanisms that ensure an ongoing conversation/discussion about change and improvement
6. Make innovation in teaching and learning a strategic goal of the organization."

Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice

Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

For most of my teaching career, I’ve been a pretty traditional teacher (even now I slip back into that mode sometimes). However, as I went through the motions of trying to “teach” my students, something didn’t feel right. My students seemed to learn things only for the exam, were focused on the mark, not the learning that was supposed to be taking place. When the unit or semester was over, they dumped all their notes and assignments. Frustrating.

Do Teachers Need to Relearn How to Learn? – Redefining my role: Teacher as student

Do Teachers Need to Relearn How to Learn? – Redefining my role: Teacher as student | elearning_moodle_schools | Scoop.it

"I guess I’m a “techy” teacher. I finally accepted the label – given to me by co-workers – sometime in the past year, but I’m still a little surprised by the fact. After all, I had never been on the Internet until after I received my undergraduate degree and it wasn’t until I started teaching (about 7 years ago) that I really began to learn about computers and technology."
