The Flipped Classroom: an experiment

Hi Harold Lounge,
I posted this to my personal blog earlier in the week and thought it might be fun to share.

Let me know what you think!

The Flipped Classroom: an experiment.

In addition to the sources mentioned in the post, I’ve also been reading “Flip your Classroom”, which has some very good suggestions.

Happy midterm!
Carrie

  1. Thanks for sharing these ideas, Carrie! The entire project sounds a bit daunting, but you have inspired me to consider ways in which I might make my quizzes more engaging and varied. If I could have students consistently express their experience doing assignments as “It feels more like learning,” I would be thrilled. Video explanations about assignments also sound like they’d be pretty worthwhile. I can always use more class time, and I’d love to repeat myself less. Good food for thought.

  2. Carrie,
    I have been interested in the flipped classroom for a couple of years, and now that LIS 101 is going to happen, I might get the chance to try it. I wonder about the technical aspects of what you are doing. I could see myself creating youtube videos for students to watch at home, but that would require some skills that I am only moderately decent at. Considering that everything we do has to be branded in accordance with district mandates, I would worry about being called out for not following official guidelines. Do you have any suggestions regarding branding or technology use?
