Ready to harness the force of your students’ curiosity and full engagement in learning?
Flipped-instruction Jedi Ramsey Musallam will help you to deepen your appreciation and understanding of flipped instruction and give you tools to ground this blended learning technique in an inquiry-based learning cycle.
The true purpose of flipped instruction is not to create good videos of your lectures or simply to move teaching activities from the classroom space to the homework space. It is essentially about good teaching and the creation of a learning environment of inquiry, collaboration and critical thinking.
In addition to providing a pedagogical foundation for flipped instruction, Ramsey will share techniques for creating instructional video and tools for increasing student interaction with the materials you provide. Learn how you can use flipped instruction to identify student misconceptions and modify your instruction to address these misconceptions.
- Why you need to place instructional video in the context of an inquiry- based learning cycle
- Strategies for creating multimedia learning instructional experiences
- How to track student progress in the flipped classroom
- Promoting student interaction with videos: How to get them to reflect on what they watch
- How to identify student misconceptions about the flipped classroom and tailor your class instruction accordingly
- Choosing a technology to create instructional video
- How to cultivate anticipation of instruction to be delivered via video
