Flipping the Classroom is a framework for designing your hybrid/blended courses. It incorporates many student-centered and active learning techniques. When you flip the classroom, students are held accountable for coming to class prepared and spend quality time in the f2f class applying concepts and material. Join us to learn about flipping the classroom and find out how to make the learning experience more enjoyable for you and your students. NOTE: This workshop will be delivered online. We will send the participants a link to the webinar prior to the start date.

Book Club
Location: 
CETL House #54: Conference Room

Participants will read and discuss José Antonio Bowen’s provocatively titled book and its vision of a face to face classroom stripped of all technology to promote greater engagement and learning. The book “Teaching Naked” is based on a simple premise: moving technology out of the classroom will enhance student learning. By classroom, Bowen means any face-to-face interaction. He actually makes extensive use of technology before or after in-person meetings, but chooses to privilege the human dimension when in direct contact with his students. Participants in this book club will discuss his vision for technology outside the classroom—for information delivery, engagement and assessment—and for naked teaching, a naked curriculum, and even a naked campus.

Limited to 15 participants. Each will receive a copy of the book.

People who are experts in their domains are not automatically able to teach all the skills needed in that domain. Precisely because of our own expertise, we are victims of the phenomenon called expert blind spot. In this workshop, we will review the research on expert blind spot, juxtapose it with the research on skill acquisition, and brainstorm strategies to guide students toward mastery.
