Willard College is Flipped out on Flipped Classrooms!

Dear Willard College faculty,      Flip Wilson - Flipped Out

Assessment Strategies for the Flipped Classroom is an exciting new approach to assessing a new approach to the classroom. I realize that we are all busy, so if you don’t have time to read the hyperlink, here are the highlights.

“Students are solving problems and analyzing information. They are working in small groups, talking together, and moving around. The instructor interacts and guides but does not lecture. In fact, no one has lectured to these students in weeks. It looks a little messy.
Some might call it chaotic. But it isn’t out of control. It is simply flipped—and it’s supposed to be that way. Flipped classes are the talk of campuses right now because they can be very effective learning environments. But with all that chaos, how can you tell that it’s working?

Can you guess what the answer is?

Sincerely, Henry Cotton

P.S. Remember that  “all the new terminology—flipping, layering—can seem confusing at first. However, the words don’t have to get in your way. You can get past the lingo and straight to how best to measure learning in Assessment Strategies for the Flipped Classroom, a new Magna Online Seminar.”
