Sessions of The Flipped Classroom Approach Forum 2017
More teachers are adopting the “flipped classroom” strategy which instructs students outside classroom via online videos and engages them with “homework” in class, reversing the traditional teaching approach to strike for better learning outcomes. The Flipped Classroom Approach Forum 2017 on 8 Dec hosted by CUHK will review relevant practices to support teachers who want to adopt the approach with latest trends and strategies that can address arising challenges.
The event is held by the UGC-funded project "Effective Implementation of the Flipped Classroom Approach in Hong Kong Higher Education for Enhanced Learning Outcomes" jointly participated by CUHK, HKBU, PolyU, EduHK and CityU. There are three sessions with speakers in each sharing their expertise and experience in implementing flipped learning. Taking the first session as an example, Dr. Nanda Dimitrov and Ms. Aisha Haque from Western University, Canada, will explore what types of learning materials support student engagement online and what else needs face-to-face guidance.
Teachers can learn more about and register to join the forum at the website of Centre for Learning Enhancement And Research (CLEAR) which are backing the flipped classroom project. The centre runs a number of education studies and events, including the Teaching and Learning Innovation Expo 2017 which is one day (7 Dec) before the forum.
