Titles of the Individual Presentations in a Panel

Subject Area

Foreign Language Pedagogy

Abstract

The Flipping the classroom pedagogy has generated a lot of interest of teachers of all levels and different fields. The main objective of this pedagogy is to make the learning environment student-centered rather than teacher-centered. In this student-centered approach to learning, students become responsible for their learning by receiving the theory about the subject matter outside the classroom. The instructor can have a variety of resources for that, for instance, the textbook, a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation, and/or video lectures. This pedagogy allows the students to be introduced to content prior to class and the class time is invested in practicing or discussing what they have learned outside the classroom. In the particular case of a second language acquisition, the purpose of this paper is to share my experience of flipping the classroom with a holistic approach so that, the instructor can utilize the class time to practice the communication skills by speaking more and not focusing in the theory. Additionally, the instructor will have the ability to address student needs one-on-one basis.
