Abstract: The flipped classroom model is an approach to maximizing classroom time by using technology to "flip" the traditional model of teaching. Content in the form of online lectures and presentations is offered outside of class, while hands-on activities and collaborative learning take place in the classroom. With innovative tools for producing online content and interactive lessons, instruction that used to occur in class is now accessed at home. Class becomes the place to work through problems, advance concepts and engage students with creative learning strategies. Most importantly, all aspects of instruction can be rethought to best maximize the scarcest resource of all, time. This model can be applied to both K-12 and higher education learning environments.

Objectives

This workshop aims to give participants hands on training with planning and creating their own flipped classroom lesson plans. participants will be given direct guidance from the instructors on planning strategies. Hands on training with suggested technologies will also be given. Participants will leave with instructional materials to take back to their classrooms. The instructors hope to also build confidence in participants to try new teaching strategies to improve the quality of learning for students.

Topical Outline

This presentation will be broken into three main sections. First, a brief demonstration of flipped classroom lesson plans from the workshop instructors will be given as a introduction to the model. Second, the participants will be guided through an iterative workshop to design instructional materials and methods of delivery. Lastly, participants will create corresponding classroom activities with their students.

Prerequisites

Participants are expected to have a basic understanding of Web 2.0 tools. This workshop will cover both tablet and computer directions.
