BREATHING NEW LIFE INTO YOUR COURSE
Friday, Sept. 18 | 9:30-11:30 a.m.
Marriott Libray, Faculty Center room 1705
CTLE’s first series of workshops will be focused on “Breathing New Life into Your Course.” The first workshop is on Sept. 18 and will examine Backward Design and how you can get started in developing a new course or making major changes in one you have taught before. This first workshop does not differentiate between teaching online, hybrid or face-to-face.
The second workshop on Oct. 9 specifically looks at breathing new life to face-to-face classes. The third workshop in this series will be just after Fall Break (yes, we are almost there) on Oct. 23 and will focus on the components of effective online courses and how we can take advantage of this modality through various activities for our students. It should be a great series of workshops and I would recommend it to faculty of all levels of experience.
All CTLE workshops are held on Friday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. in the Faculty Center of the Marriott Library (MLIB 1705). The Faculty Center is located on level one of the Marriott Library.
Registration for upcoming workshops is available at ctle.utah.edu/tws. Light refreshments will be provided.
A BUSY PROFESSOR’S GUIDE TO SANELY FLIPPING YOUR CLASS – CYNTHIA FURSE
Flipped, hybrid, online, technology-assisted, active learning…we’ve all heard about these courses and how effective active learning can be. But it can be daunting to figure out how to apply it in YOUR class. This video describes how I have ‘flipped’ the classroom for a large required undergraduate engineering course. I’ll talk about why I did this and how I got started, what worked and what didn’t, what I’ve learned that seems to be key to success and how to make the in-class time successful. We’ll talk about this from a student point of view (what works for them) and from a faculty point of view (a busy professor’s guide to sanely flipping your class).
Aug. 31 – Oct. 12
Cost per enrollment: Free
Ready to flip your classroom? Teaching Flipped is a free, six-week online course offered through Canvas Network, starting August 31, but you can still sign up. Find out more about what it takes to flip your class and work through the process step-by-step with instructors Cindy Furse, Donna Ziegenfuss and Alyson Froehlich at the University of Utah. Topics include the basics of the flipped classroom, creating of video lectures, planning active learning face to face (F2F) experiences and taking the leap to fully flip.
