Get the most out of class time: Active learning tips

‘Flipping’ a classroom has become a popular buzzword in recent years, originally used as a way for students who missed a class to catch up on lecture content. This has rapidly evolved and the flipped classroom can now be described as a reversal of traditional teaching, where students access materials before class (readings, lecture videos, etc.) so that the class time can be devoted to deeply understanding the content through strategies such as problem-solving, discussion or debates.

In this recording, Ann begins with an exploration of your questions and experiences of flipped classes. She will then present five strategies for increasing student activity during class time, and you’ll be invited to discuss these ideas in the light of your own discipline areas.
