TeaLab Thursday 7 November 12:00 Gibbs 3.01

Hi all,

The TeaLab topic this week is Flipped Teaching.

This method flips traditional approaches of teaching around, so students engage in learning via technologies before a class, and use the time with their teacher to practice what they’ve learnt. The benefits include:

Space for students who struggle to take time with a subject and seek support in class

Space for high achieving students to stretch themselves with topics and ask probing questions in class

Opportunities for students to collaborate in a structured setting

This approach promotes lesson planning and helps to structure syllabi

Flip teaching exploits digital media and can be engaging for students

In summary, students do the homework BEFORE the class. In this spirit, here is your homework for the TeaLab session this Thursday:

During the TeaLab session we’ll critique Flip Teaching and explore how you might employ some of the strategies in your own discipline.
