THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM
CREATING 'CONTENT CONTRIBUTORS, NOT CONTENT CONTAINERS'
"Meeting time is sacred time. Class should be spent doing only the things that can only be done when those people are together in that classroom," said Erin Hachtel, a student in the executive master of organization development program.
Hachtel was a student panelist at the recent "Demystifying the Flipped Classroom" Teaching Summit hosted by the College of Business Administration. She affirmed the belief of keynote speaker Dr. Jose Bowen, president of Goucher College and a leading expert in flipped learning. Bowen is also the author of "Teaching Naked," which refers to faculty being totally present for their students in class, designating listening and reading assignments to time out of class and active problem–solving to in–class time.
About 100 people participated in the summit, including BGSU faculty from across colleges and disciplines, faculty from other universities, business people and even people watching by live stream from as far away as Nigeria.
In addition to talking together, participants also shared with colleagues by tweeting throughout the event. Visit @bgsuflipped to read their comments from the day, and watch the video.
