Enhance the variety of teaching, create a resource students like to engage with and save time in the long run. These are just a few positive outcomes Dr Rajesh Tiwari, School of Engeneering, has seen through his use of videos when using a flipped classroom approach.
The videos work brilliantly well when Rajesh wants to give information about practical skills, as well as when there are difficult concepts that need some extra explanation.
In a neat follow-on from Nutela’s latest event on flipped classrooms, Edubites will be running a flipped curriculum event next week.
Edubites is an educator-led network based at Newcastle, encouraging collaboration and cooperation between peers to share ideas and good practice in teaching. You can find out more by reading founding member Katie Wray’s guest blog about the inaugral EDUBITES.
The event, drawing on the flipped classroom model, will look at how to put students in control of what they study, allowing them to design or influence curriculum design.
The session will question whether this approach is feasible or even desirable in the academy, allowing teaching staff to compare notes and ideas.
The event will take place next Wednesday 8th June 12-1pm in Bedson 1.19 and lunch will be provided.
NUTELA will be hosting another of their successful 3Ps workshops on 20th May.
As usual the workshop will take place from 12-2pm, with plenty of pizza and pop and lashings of practice.
The theme for this session is flipped classroom and there will be number of sessions exploring what this term really means, how it can be useful and plenty of examples of good practice from across the University.
The event will be held in the Committee Room in the Robinson Library.
