Sem Sælands vei 7
The end of semester is around the corner and so is the Flipped Classroom project.
We had the pleasure of hosting a Flipped Classroom seminar on October 22nd in our department and have two flipped classroom experts from Finland to share their knowledge and experiences. There was a good number of interested faculty staff members present in the seminar.
After two additional weeks of practicing Flipped Classroom in SPED4400, both the team and the students are starting to get a feel for the flipped routine.
Our course started last week with a general info meeting for the students. We provided some information about the course structure and the way we are going to flip the teaching this autumn. Students also answered for a brief questionnaire about their background and expectations for the course. After a brief introduction for the flipped classroom approach, 85% of the students (N = 22) said that they expect to learn more in the flipped classroom way than in the traditional teaching. This was encouraging for us to hear!
We have been preparing some content for the learning platform Canvas, which will be used in our course next autumn.
Our team spent two days at the Professorboligen 6.-7.6.2019, planning the course, which will be flipped in next autumn.
During the first week of May the Flipped Learning Team travelled to Finland to learn all about the philosophy, implementation and results of Flipped Classroom methods from educators who have successfully used this approach as an alternative to traditional teacher-centered lecturing.
