Guest post: Blending and flipping modern architecture - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Guest post: Blending and flipping modern architecture - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

There’s a lot on this blog about the flipped or inverted classroom, and it’s primarily from the mathematics and STEM perspective. I am often asked how the inverted classroom might look in the humanities or social sciences. I’d like to welcome Jeff Schramm, an associate professor of History and Political Science at Missouri University of Science and Technology, whose guest post today details his use of the flipped classroom in a history of architecture course. Enjoy! –rt


 

Sharrock's insight:

This is the central site for the flipped classroom model as college professor facilitates it. He has tips, reflections, and experiences to share, and he appears to respond to comments posted at the end of the article.

Flies That Do Calculus With Their Wings

Flies That Do Calculus With Their Wings | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Scientists glued tiny magnets to fruit flies to learn about the millisecond aerial ballets required to stay aloft when you’re a tiny insect.
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "At Cornell University, for instance, researchers have been investigating how the flies recover when their flight is momentarily disturbed. Among their conclusions: a small group of fly neurons is solving calculus problems, or what for humans are calculus problems."

The inverted calculus course and self-regulated learning - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education

The inverted calculus course and self-regulated learning - Casting Out Nines - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

Self-regulated learning is what it sounds like: Learning that is initiated, managed, and assessed by the learners themselves. An instructor can play a role in this process, so it’s not the same thing as teaching yourself a subject (although all successful autodidacts are self-regulating learners), but it refers to how the individual learner approaches learning tasks.

 
Sharrock's insight:

this is part of a series in the higher ed journal The Chronicle. author/mathematician shares experiences and advice as he facilitates the flipped class.
