Stream: Higher Education
Presentation Type: Workshop Presentation
Layla Shelmerdine, Duke Kunshan University, China
There are a plethora of benefits to the flipped-classroom approach for students and teachers such as improving learner performance and learner engagement; promoting collaboration; encouraging better preparation before class; and providing opportunities for peer-based learning. However, as education, particularly higher education, has increasingly moved to an asynchronous, online medium, some teachers and lecturers are struggling to implement flipped-classroom activities such as student-led discussions, peer-based learning activities, and group projects in a virtual environment. To that end, the objectives of this workshop are to discuss and practice ways teachers and students can utilize different technologies in an online learning environment. Firstly, the workshop provides an example lesson that demonstrates how to teach students to use different technologies to maximize their engagement with the lesson. Secondly, the workshop will illustrate different ways teachers could adapt various facets of their lessons for the online environment. Finally, the workshop will provide an opportunity for hands-on practice with technology such as different types of Zoom polls to encourage student discussion and encourage participation; screen annotation for brainstorming; and creative and engaging ways students can present and share information from assignments completed outside the classroom with their peers during their online lesson.
