Flipped Classroom Workshop series

The flipped classroom is a major part of current higher ed discussions.  In the Higher Ed Edition of the 2014 NMC Horizon Report, the New Media Consortium identified flipped classrooms as an emerging practice and expects the technology for it to be adopted on a large scale within the next year.  With that in mind, we invite you to a series of workshops on “flipping” your class, which have been developed by Fordham’s Center for Teaching Excellence, the Electronic Information Center, and Faculty Technology Services. 

Any Fordham Faculty member is welcome to attend.  Please feel free to RSVP to any of the events below: 

Practical Application of Flipped Class Techniques

This workshop offers faculty a hands-on learning opportunity for planning class activities that support deeper learning in conjunction with developing pre-class video lectures and assessment strategies.  Mat Schottenfeld, Television Production Manager at our library’s Electronic Information Center, and also a presenter on flipped classrooms at last year's EDUCAUSE conference, will talk about:
  • Self-directed and self-paced flexible learning
