“The Flipped Classroom” – Call for Proposals and Save the Date

While not an entirely a new concept, there has been increased interest in what’s called the “Flipped Classroom.”  Typically, “flipping” is considered to be the practice of using video segments to disseminate content-rich lessons outside of the classroom, thereby allowing classroom time to be used for interaction and hands-on activities.  However, the flipped classroom model can take many forms and may also involve a wide variety of technologies and methodologies.  Join your UW-Whitewater colleagues as we consider what it means (and does not mean) to “flip” a classroom and discuss the potential benefits and pitfalls of this practice.  Particular emphasis will be on exploring methods for using “flipping” techniques to enhance student learning and engagement.

If you have used “flipping” techniques in your own teaching, please share your experiences and ideas with your colleagues – even if you have just experimented! We welcome presentation proposals that include best practices (based upon successes or failures), lesson samples, demonstrations, techniques, lesson evaluations, and/or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning research results.

This event is sponsored by the Learning Technology Center (LTC), the LEARN Center, and the College of Education and Professional Studies.  Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

If you are interested in registering for this workshop as a presenter, please contact Renee Pfeifer-Luckett, Director, Learning Technology Center to discuss your proposal topic (pfeiferr@uww.edu).  Full details on the Call For Proposals can be accessed from the following link: http://geturl.uww.edu/1i3
