Flip: "Flipping Traditional Approaches to Teaching
Feb. 7, 2023
In this session we discussed "flipping" the traditional approaches to teaching while offering some examples of ways to incorporate effective strategies. Instructors can use various tools such as Flip or Video Note to create assignments and assessments that involve video responses, such as having students record themselves explaining a concept or giving a presentation. These platforms are popularly used for the Flipped Classroom pedological model of teaching, where students can engage with the content prior to class so they can maximize opportunities of learning during class. Join us for this session as we "Flip" out over these strategies!

In this interactive session, we will discuss ways to implement retrieval practice strategies and how “struggling” can improve learning.
