The “flipped classroom” is a hybrid classroom model that inverts traditional teaching by delivering some instruction online while bringing homework into the classroom. In disciplines such as chemistry, the most effective learning occurs when students practice applying the concepts taught by solving problems. Flipping the classroom makes instructors available to help students out when they hit a snag on exercises, avoiding student frustration and “giving up” on homework. Instructors may also encourage students to collaborate, enhancing learning through peer instruction, with the instructor available to clear up confusion if it arises. These techniques allow the instructor to devote face-to-face class time to practicing and reinforcing concepts through problem solving.
Presenters will discuss exciting possibilities of how the “flipped classroom” model can be work in CUNY classrooms, across disciplines, in order to best maximize limited classroom time: Professor Alex Berrio Matamoros will demonstrate usage of a new collaborative video platform called Academize used in his legal research classes; Professor Dionne A. Miller will discuss the successful use of Articulate software to deliver interactive lectures in chemistry classes; Ian Sullivan from the open education project Wikiotics, will discuss how second language education can be an ideal test case for the flipped classroom.
