What did you learn today? Reflecting on running an online course and realised that it would be good practice to use online tutoring skills to prepare to flip a classroom
How was it useful? Flipping the classroom involves freeing up class time to deal with assessments and get the students to study in their own time. Lots of literature on this (Herreid, Schiller, 2013), (Tucker, 2012), and loads of websites,(http://www.knewton.com/flipped-classroom/http://cft.vanderbilt.edu/guides-sub-pages/flipping-the-classroom/ ) raving about it
What thoughts came up ? That if I can do this properly, I could turn each of the subjects in some of my full time modules into short online courses, and use the materials etc. to support flipped classrooms in future semesters!What did you learn? Online courses take a lot of time, but if I can make good re-use of the material then I can reach a wider audience with less work in the long term.
What will you do with the information i.e. what next? Try it out with one subject from my full time F2F courses.
