The flipped classroom – a unique workshop for UCL teaching staff
25 April 2013
Explore the benefits and best ways of using flipped teaching in a two-day workshop, led by a visiting professor.
The flipped classroom (see video below for definition) is changing students’ expectations of what happens during lectures. It is a process of harnessing technology to present the didactic aspects of the lecture in advance over the web, along with activities to stimulate students’ advanced thinking. In the areas of UCL where flipping has been adopted, staff report engaged, hard-working students contributing to exhilarating large-group sessions. This workshop explores how and why.
- Describe a process to support academic teachers in making decisions about, and practising, flipping
- Contribute to the production of resources and patterns that can be used subsequently
- Develop participants' teaching and content for the flipped format
The workshop has been designed uniquely for UCL by International Teaching Excellence Bursary recipient Professor Tracey Tokuhama-Espinosa, Teacher and Researcher in Education and Neuropsychology, Director of the Institute of Learning and Teaching and Director of Online Education, Universidad de San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador. Tracey will be making her visit to UCL for a fortnight from 24 June.
In this video, Tracey introduces herself and the concept of the flipped classroom:
Tracey’s co-facilitators will be Carl Gombrich, Director of UCL's Bachelor of Arts and Sciences (BASc), Teaching Fellow and pioneer of flipped classrooms at UCL, and Clive Young, Team Leader for E-Learning Advisory in E-Learning Environments (ELE) and Project Leader of the transnational REC:ALL Project – Recording and Augmenting Lectures for Learning.
Day 1: Monday 24 June 9am-5pm
A morning of presentations and discussion, followed by a practical afternoon of designing a flipped teaching session, recording some audiovisual material, and using Moodle to elicit student questions.
Between the first and second days, interim work on redesigning your large-group session and creating your video, supported by E-Learning Environments, meeting with Tracey to exchange plans and experiences. This will feed into the aforementioned workshop goals.
Day 2: Friday 28 June, 9am-5pm
A morning of sharing insights and finishing the videos, followed by an afternoon of presenting and feeding back on the videos.
The workshop venue will be on UCL's campus and equipment will be provided, though you are welcome and encouraged to bring your own devices.
To register or find out more, contact Mira Vogel: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that this unique, highly interactive and hands-on workshop is limited to 16 participants, so if you sign up, please do attend and arrange to stay until the end.
