[Thursday June 16th Update! ARCHIVE: Did you miss the webinar? Watch it here! (65 minutes) Be sure to read the comments too! Want to continue the discussion? Look over the resources on the webinar wiki page and then click on the Discussion tab at the top!]
Scott McLeod has invited me to participate in a webinar on the ‘flipped classroom’. My time zone is working against me as it will be 3am here in Dalian. With a few year-end commitments going on next week, coupled with an apartment too small to escape waking my family up, I may not actually get a chance to participate.
That said, check out the links Scott shares to the articles the participants have written on ‘flipping’. You can comment on their blogs and contribute to the conversation, and please join in on the webinar if you get a chance. (What time is it for you?)
Here is Scott McLeod’s post he has invited us to share:
The ‘flipped classroom’ [WEBINAR]
WHAT: Webinar – The ‘flipped classroom’
Despite its now-famous Dan-Pink-sponsored affiliation with our esteemed colleague, Karl Fisch, is the ‘flipped classroom’ a true innovation or just a new label on the old stale wine of lectures? Is it something we should be encouraging or discouraging? If it has benefits, are they worth the accompanying drawbacks? Please join us for a lively, 1-hour online discussion about the ‘flipped classroom.’
WHEN: June 15, 2:00pm to 3:00pm Central Standard Time (Chicago). Yes, we’ll record it and put the link here for those who can’t attend.
