College of Business hosts 'Demystifying the Flipped Classroom'
Every day is "opposite day" in a number of BGSU College of Business classrooms. Students are doing their homework in class after viewing their lessons at home. And their homework does not look anything like the traditional sort. Instead, they are working in teams to solve problems based on what they learned at home, with assessment activities built in and educational technology on hand for sharing their solutions.
What's going on is the "flipped classroom," a new, highly energetic, active learning style of teaching that is enriched by technology. The College of Business has embraced the concept, and about a dozen of its faculty are piloting the deep learning methods in their classrooms.
The college will host an innovative teaching summit, "Demystifying the Flipped Classroom," on Nov. 5 to introduce and share flipped learning with the rest of the University community and others. The daylong event will include breakfast and lunch and sessions for beginning and advanced users and those completely new to flipped learning. Attendance is free but reservations are required.
