FLIPPED! Panel at FIT EduTech Day

I was invited by CJ Yeh to speak on a panel about the flipped classroom for EduTech Day at FIT. We all spoke about how we are using websites and social media to buttress overall instruction. From the program: FLIPPED! Redefining the Classroom in the Age of Social Media The concept of “flipped classroom” inverts traditional teaching methods and transformed the role of a teacher from the sage on the stage to the guide on the side. The core concept is that students watch video lectures or read required texts online at home, and what takes place in the classroom will be concept engagement activities with the help of the instructor instead of lectures.
