Special Interest Group meeting (Flipped Classroom)
FLIP 2017S APRIL

Location: Harry Hickman Building (Room: 128)

Facilitator(s): Carly Bagelman (Co-operative Education Program and Career Services), Meg Thompson (Co-operative Education and Career Services), Bryan Smith (Technology Integrated Learning)

Description:

Part 1: "Beyond Attendance: Using Polling Technologies to Flip the Classroom”

Classroom polling systems (e.g., iClicker and TopHat) have become a staple in post-secondary classrooms. When used effectively, polling technologies have the capacity to increase student attention, engagement and learning. However, use is often limited to taking attendance or delivering low-level, multiple-choice questions. In this short presentation, we will explore strategies for using polling technologies to flip the classroom. Using Bloom’s Taxonomy as a framework, this presentation demonstrates ways to leverage polling technologies to promote active learning and higher order thinking (e.g., application, analysis, and evaluation) in a flipped-classroom environment. Bryan Smith, TIL, presenter.

Part 2: "Flipped Classroom Infographic"

While we have explored many benefits of the flipped classroom model, we wonder if they might be even further enhanced if students are brought into an explicit discussion of the features of and spirit behind pedagogy. We hope to discuss clear descriptions of the model to share with students at the beginning of their courses, and how we might translate this into a ready-to-use infographic. Meg Thompson and Carly Bagelman, Co-op and Career, presenters.
