CELT is offering a Flipped Classroom Workshop Series this June!

Flipped Classroom Workshop Series
Meets on the following Tuesdays:
June 7, 14, 21, and 28
10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., 2030 Morrill Hall

This 4-part workshop series offers an opportunity to learn more about the flipped classroom and how to incorporate this approach into a course. A flipped classroom is an instructional strategy that reverses the traditional educational arrangement by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom. This approach moves activities, including traditional homework, into the face-to-face classroom. The goal of this summer workshop series is to help instructors and potential instructors start developing their course to a flipped classroom approach. Coordinating Faculty: Jacqulyn Baughman, Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, Senior Lecturer, College of Engineering. Learn more about Flipped Classrooms by visiting the CELT Blended Learning and the Flipped Classroom website.

*Registration is required for this event prior June 7. When registering for this program – you will register for all four events. *

*Register for CELT events online through the Learn@ISU website*

In this session, we will introduce what is flipped classroom. And share the current status of flipped classroom implementation in higher education and Iowa State University. A faculty panel with members from different disciplines will share their lesson learned with participants. This interactive discussion will help examine how flipped classroom may guide our students’ learning processes and enhance your instruction. Panelists: Amber Bellville (Department of Supply Chain and Information Systems) and Laura Ellingson (Department of Kinesiology)

Part 2: Jun. 14 (Tue.): How to integrate flipped classroom?

This session will introduce strategies for implementing flipped classroom approach and methods to enhance student engagement. Faculty panel speakers will share detailed implementation examples that include content preparation for both face-to-face and online environments, assessments/evaluations development that aligned with course learning objectives/outcomes. Presenters: Jacqulyn Baughman (Department of Mechanical Engineering) and Ganesh Balasubramanian (Department of Mechanical Engineering)

Part 3: Jun. 21 (Tue.): Flipped classroom design (Hands-on Activity)

For this session, participants will come prepared with an idea in mind of how they will flip an activity in their course. A summarized overview will be presented to review the challenges and opportunities discussed from session 2. After this discussion, the session will take on a workshop format. Participants will be given time to work on and discuss their own ideas. The facilitators of the session will work with individuals and groups as they think about applying these ideas to their own courses.

Part 4: Jun. 28 (Tue.): What is next step for flipped classroom?

This session will discuss resources and services available at Iowa State to support instructors if they’re interested in flipping their courses. CELT staff will also introduce programming opportunities provided at CELT that can help the instructor to continue to develop their understanding of flipped classroom. In addition, participants will discuss the future of the flipped classroom learning community and develop strategies to expand the current community and encourage active participation. Presenters: CELT staffs, Jacob Larsen (ITS) and Jeanna Nation (Department of Human Development and Family Studies)
