Flipped talk on flipped classrooms

February 11th, 2013 in Case Studies, Engineering, Flipped Classrooms, TED-Ed

This Wednesday, BU engineering professor Lorena Barba will give a Teaching Talk on the topic of the “flipped” classroom, in which course content (such as lectures) is delivered online in order to free up class time for interactive participation. Practising what she preaches, Prof. Barba will be flipping the talk itself. She is asking attenders to view an interactive online presentation before they come to the talk. As a tool, Prof. Barba uses the free TED-Ed platform, which she also uses in her classes (see an example here).

Prof. Barba has written a longer piece in defence of the flipped classroom, with many links, available here.
