Join the Center for Educational Innovation for Pedagogical Innovations Journal Club on May 19th at 12:30 in Room 444 UOffP. Each month we will present a different journal article describing a pedagogical innovation that may spark some ideas for your teaching. In May we will discuss the article "Improvements from a Flipped Classroom May Simply Be the Fruits of Active Learning" published in CBE-Life Sciences Education. Flipped classrooms have been shown to improve student learning when compared to traditional lecture approaches. This article begins to identify why that is the case. The authors studied a principle of the flipped classroom: that content attainment occurs before class and concept application occurs in class. They compared this approach to a general active learning approach: active content attainment occurs in class and concept application occurs out of class. They found no difference in student learning outcomes with either approach. These results allow them to hypothesize about what the critical elements are for learning in each approach. We will discuss those elements and some other interesting findings from this paper during the session. You do not have to read the article to benefit from attending the journal club. Bring your lunch, dessert will be served. Parking in the Gopher Lot will be validated. For a copy of the article or to attend remotely: email Christina Petersen firstname.lastname@example.org.
Facilitator: Christina Petersen, Center for Educational Innovation
