Where: McKeldin Library : 7121
Event Type(s): Other

Are you planning or curious about flipping your classroom? In this introductory and interactive seminar participants will learn to define key elements of a flipped classroom such as online lectures, self-assessment, student engagement activities. We will discuss and explore ways in which "flipping" a class facilitates higher order critical thinking skills. Participants will learn about technologies and resources that support the flipping process and discuss active learning strategies in a flipped teaching environment. Every workshop participant will also have the opportunity to apply flipping strategies to design a course. No prerequisites required. Please RSVP - http://ter.ps/83m.

6. TLTC Teaching Tip of the Week: Office Hours

Event Type(s): Other

Faculty are a great resource for students. Office hours offer access to this resource and are ideal opportunities for students and faculty to build personal relationships, which can ultimately help to improve the learning experience in and outside the classroom. Frequently remind students to come to your office hours if they have questions, want advice on an assignment, need help, or want ideas for further study. Consider a participation assignment where they have to find your office and sign a sheet on the door, or make at least one office hour visit mandatory. Watch this video http://ter.ps/83n to learn more.
