Presented by Cory Budischak
Session Type: Conversation
Have you or do you want to institute problem based learning (PBL) enhanced by flipping the classroom? If so, this conversation session is right for you. PBL, an active, collaborative, and inquiry-based approach to learning, can require extra in class time that can be tough to fit into a normal class period already stuffed full of lecture. Flipping the classroom, or putting your lecture online, can help to free up this class time for PBL.
This session will start off with a brief overview of PBL, flipping the classroom in an engineering/science classroom, as well as some potential benefits and roadblocks. The rest of the session will be an open discussion. Please bring your ideas, questions, and thoughts to share.
To see an example of PBL enhanced by flipping the classroom, see this video of how I employ this strategy: http://youtu.be/MS9xoBz_JtM?t=5m18s or read about it here: https://sites.google.com/site/corybudischak/eportfolio.
Note: While PBL and flipping can be used in many classroom environments, this discussion will focus primarily on engineering/science classrooms.
