Title

The Flipped Classroom, or How Hurricane Matthew Changed the Way I Teach

Subject Area

Foreign Language Pedagogy

Abstract

The flipped classroom is an old concept that has received renewed attention in graduate schools and teaching training programs in recent years. The threefold purpose of this presentation is (1) to define the term "flipped classroom", (2) to discuss pros and cons of the practice, and (3) to present best practices.

The discussion addressing the first two objectives will be research based, but the third point will be more anecdotal and will focus on the role of computer-generated learning, especially for homework and class preparation. One anticipated outcome, in addition to changing the basic procedures and lesson planning in the classroom, is the effect on certain Student Learning Outcomes and how they may be enhanced.

It is anticipated that an integral part of the presentation will be questions and discussion from the attendees of the session and their viewpoint on this timely and much debated topic.
