Tools for teaching: Flipping, blending, engaging and optimising

Two opportunities to experience more on 17th November ...

11am HULT220 November 17th “VicFlip Session 1 – the Seminar” An event jointly sponsored by SBS and VicTeach

Pierre Rebstock and Claire Phipps School of Inter-professional Health Studies Auckland University of Technology

Pierre and Claire teach across several high-enrolment, first-year core courses at Auckland University of Technology in the School of Interprofessional Health studies catering for health, sport, and applied science students. Servicing over 1800 students per year, “Knowledge, Enquiry and Communication”, an academic literacy and writing course, is the largest paper at AUT. Pierre, Claire and their team were recent recipients of the AUT Vice Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence (2015) for their flipped classroom initiative within this course.

Initially delivered as traditional large-group, extended (90-minute) lecture sessions streamed to multiple campuses at one time, Pierre and Claire “flipped” this course and now deliver it in a collection of shorter online lecture modules supported by a strong alignment with interactive tutorial activities, which has had positive outcomes for students. This model has helped to guide their students through developing a chosen research topic, finding credible supporting information, thinking critically about the research process while encouraging self-directed learning and ultimately self-reliance.

Pierre and Claire have placed the following principles at the core of the flipped classroom redesign: • Prioritising student experience • Listening and acting on feedback • Proactive innovation • Constructive alignment • Regular iterative redesign

In this seminar, Claire and Pierre are offering their experiences so far, from the initial concept to the current fourth iteration of the course as a flipped classroom.

2pm-4pm AM103 November 17th

“VicFlip 2015 Session 2 – The interactive workshop”

Pierre Rebstock and Claire Phipps School of Inter-professional Health Studies Auckland University of Technology

This workshop is an opportunity for participants to have a hands-on experience of the major aspects of a flipped classroom initiative. Doing so will assist in understanding/demystifying the concept, its deployment and sustainability.

A series of four 20-minute activities will cover the student perception of the flipped classroom, how to capitalise on this knowledge for the creation of digital assets, the importance of face-to-face sessions to expand the basic concepts and finally the role of assessment strategies to evaluate the effectiveness of the model.

In the spirit of the flipped classroom and its class preparatory activities, workshop attendees will be asked to view a short video and carry out a mysterious (and delicious) task in their own time, prior to attending. Additional details about the task will be sent out after registration (no spoilers).

If you are involved/interested in the following this workshop is for you: On-line course delivery or use of digital assets in teaching Student engagement, particularly for first-year classes Teaching classes with high proportions of Maori/Pasifica students and students for whom English is not their first language Development of collaborative work on courses between CAD, ITS and teaching staff Teaching and assessing critical thinking and communication skills Delivery of courses asynchronously and/or to multiple campuses Finding out more about how teaching is done at other institutions
