The ‘flipped classroom’ model of blended learning involves online content delivery, followed by active learning in the classroom. The success of this model depends on strong student engagement both with pre-class preparation and in-class participation, but neither are guaranteed; indeed, lack of preparation and lack of attendance by students are among the most common complaints of academic teachers. How can we motivate students to engage more fully in both aspects of learning? In this session, Raoul will discuss initiatives currently being trialed in his unit to encourage engagement in preparation for class, and participation in class.
- How do you prepare students for flipped teaching?
- Intrinsic and extrinsic motivators for student engagement
