Dr. Eric Mazur - Turning Lectures Into Learning - Keynote - University Surrey - YouTube

"Dr. Mazur's teaching method has a large national and international following, and has been adapted to teaching many disciplines. He is author or co-author of over 200 publications and 12 patents, and helped produce the award-winning DVD Interactive Teaching.

"Almost 20 years ago, Harvard physicist Eric Mazur had an "aha" moment about his teaching practice that forced him to rethink the traditional unidirectional teaching model. He described his early approach to courses as "not how you teach it, but what you cover. [Then] I realized education was not merely a transfer of information. It was about how well students could assimilate information and transfer it to their own experience." So Dr. Mazur radically changed his approach. He developed a strategy that incorporates "just-in-time" teaching with short lectures punctuated by conceptual questions posed to the students, using classroom response technology. Dr. Mazur asks his students to think about and respond to these questions, and to attempt to convince each other of their positions.

 

"This is the basis of what he calls the Peer Instruction method, which
engages students, provides continuous assessment and feedback, and allows students to learn from each other."

Dr. Michael Simmons's insight:

Not new. Mostly interesting because of the Learning Catalytics product Mazur built and subsequently sold to Pearson.

Interaction is the key concept here.  Video alone often insufficient.  How to create interactivity with content, etc. is always the flipped challenge.

Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos

Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos | Flipping Courses. Engagement. Interaction. | Scoop.it
The flipped classroom model generated a lot of excitement initially, but more recently some educators -- even those who were initial advocates -- have expre (@MatthewOldridge @courosa Agreed.
Dr. Michael Simmons's insight:

Evolving thoughts:  moving toward competency.  Mastery learning!

 

"The two teachers admit when they started flipping their classrooms they put everything into video form. Now, they’ve taken a step back and realized some things shouldn’t be in lecture form, andtherefore shouldn’t be videos either. Instead, the two teachers have embraced what they call mastery learning, with an emphasis on students taking control of their own learning. Instructional videos are an optional part of a bigger move towards asynchronous learning.

“The best use of class time is to meet the individual needs of each learner, not driving the class with predetermined curriculum,” Sams said. So he and Bergmann decided to make watching the video lectures optional. The videos are available, but if students felt they could learn it better in some other way, they’re encouraged to do what works best for them."

Dr. Michael Simmons's insight:

Great insight here: "Instructional designers have characterized the transition from lecture-based teaching to other, more learner-centered modes of instruction as a shift from the "sage on the stage" to the "guide on the side."  In my own experience, at least in large enrollment courses, the shift isn't quite so distinct, and it tends to work best when the course instructor gradually changes roles, all the while training the students in their new role as active participants in the learning process.  This transition can be a challenging one for both instructors and students--and, in fact, many students will energetically resist efforts to put them in the role of active learner.  This resistance, though well-known among practitioners, is rarely discussed by advocates of flipped/hybrid/blended pedagogy.  It often comes as a shock to instructors who are teaching their redesigned course for the first time.  It certainly did to me.  Even more surprising to me was the fact that, while my fellow practitioners all told me that they had the same experience, none of the non-practitioner, blended learning "experts" had suggestions for managing this student resistance/rebellion.  Ultimately, the most useful approach, which came from the assessment specialist I was working with, was to take the complaints seriously and find ways to address them without compromising the overall design and aims of the course. The end result was a much improved course design: only about half as many pre-recorded videos to watch outside of class and much more structure and accountability.  It also led me to realize that it made no sense to redesign a course without also overhauling the course assessments."

At the star-studded Harvard Initiative on Learning and Teaching (HILT) event earlier this month, where professors gathered to discuss innovative strategies for learning and teaching, Harvard’s  professor Eric Mazur gave a talk on the benefits of practicing peer instruction in class, rather than the traditional lecture. The idea is getting traction. Here’s more about the practice.

As far as creating a “learning culture”? Again, this was more possible when I worked at a 4 year school. It is possible to some extent, but in my developmental courses, I am trying to teach both content and thinking strategies.
