In the past 30 years, scientists have discovered a lot about how people learn. But traditional universities are slow to change their ways. So a group of educators in Minnesota decided to build a brand new college.

 

This approach works when students come to class prepared by having read the assigned portions of the textbook, says professor Metzger.

 

It's not that they're expected to understand everything they've read, she says, "but we expect them to have looked over the material so that when they come to class we can use that time not just to introduce the terminology but to actually engage at a deeper level so that they can explore what those things mean [and] they can think critically about ideas."

"Lecturing was invented as a way to share information in a time before books were widely available. Now, there are better approaches.

 

Change is slow in the academy, and professors tend to be rewarded for focusing on their research, often at the expense of their teaching."

Flipped Learning: A Response To Five Common Criticisms | November Learning

Flipped Learning: A Response To Five Common Criticisms | November Learning | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

One of the most important concepts in teaching is creating opportunities to make thinking visible. When teachers can really see the thinking of their students, they can provide these students with the support and encouragement they need to be successful. We believe that by using the thoughtful approach to the Flipped Learning method described at the beginning of this article, teachers have an amazing opportunity to gain insights into where students are struggling.

 

KF:  While somewhat simplistic the article does address some of the major concerns regarding the "flipped" model.  Like many other artilces it is very light on the requisite shifts for developing and maintaining an unapologetic student-centred environment.  The deep understanding of the drivers of SCL will be more significant than simply fiddling at the edges of practice.

I guess there's a flipped activity herein - what are the "nuggets" in this presentation - what other presuppositions about flipping do they challenge - present in a 2 minute video summary!
