Technology Enhanced Learning at Sussex

Flipped Learning Group

 

What is Flipped Learning?

Flipped learning is the pedagogical model in which the 'traditional classroom' is reversed. Content which would have been delivered in class time is now interacted with by students independently prior to the class, allowing students to learn at their own pace. Class time is then used to apply what they have learnt with increased contact time between student and teacher.

Flipped Learning Group

At the request of staff who attended our ‘Flipped Learning: from transmission to active engagement’ workshop during the 16/17 Autumn term, we have now set up a Flipped Learning Group at Sussex. The Flipped Learning Group is open to all staff and will meet regularly in order to allow members to share their experiences and ideas around flipped learning approaches and to allow Technology Enhanced Learning to support staff when they come to apply these practices in their teaching.

Online Community

Alongside the face-to-face workshops, we have also created a Study Direct site which is designed to allow the flipped learning community at Sussex to share resources, ideas, support and advice. Staff are able to subscribe themselves to this site by following this link - Flipped Learning Group Study Direct site - and logging in with their Sussex username and password. Once you have logged in, click 'Yes' in order to subscribe yourself.

Face-to-face Workshops

Thursday 16th Feb 2016
13:00-15:00
Essex House 133

Theme: Planning Pre-Session Tasks and Materials

We will start by sharing ideas on, and experiences of, planning tasks for students to do before they come to a session. Following this, there will be time for you to work on preparing for an upcoming teaching session or flipped learning project. It will be a ‘maker space’ type environment, where you can get support and feedback from colleagues and members of the TEL team. If you would like to do this, it would be great if you could bring an idea or project work on, as well as a device such as a laptop or tablet (although there will be computers and ipads available). However, if you don’t want to bring anything, you can look at what other people are planning for their teaching, support them in preparing their materials or ask a member of the TEL team to demonstrate some new apps for using in your flipped classroom.

Please feel free to leave early if you have other commitments. Tea and coffee will be provided.

Theme: Planning and deploying in-class activities which promote active learning

We will start by sharing ideas on, and experiences of, how to plan and deploy in-class activities which promote active learning. This will develop ideas from our last discussion on planning pre-session tasks and materials. Following this, there will be time for you to work on preparing for an upcoming teaching session or flipped learning project. It will be a ‘maker space’ type environment, where you can get support and feedback from colleagues and members of the TEL team. If you would like to do this, it would be great if you could bring an idea or project work on, as well as a device such as a laptop or tablet (although there will be computers and ipads available).
