Research-Based Teaching Series: Best Practices for Significant Learning in the Flipped Classroom


Wednesday, March 7, 2018
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Best Practices for Significant Learning in the Flipped Classroom
Led by Sarah Formica, Associate Professor of Physics

There’s more to a flipped classroom than reading assignments and pre-lecture videos. Students need to engage with the material, each other, and their instructor to have significant learning experiences. This workshop will provide you with the opportunity to experience a flipped classroom, as well as tools and strategies you can use to flip your own. There will be a pre-workshop assignment and group activities during the workshop, so come prepared and ready to engage.

Designing and Coordinating “Study Away”

12 p.m.- 1:00 p.m.

Ever imagined how your instruction could be enriched by taking students to explore a particular site or location? While study abroad benefits are commonly appreciated, “study away” is less familiar territory.

A LEAP UNG initiative in partnership with the UNG Honors Program and the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership.

Digital Natives Lost in the Forest of Google
Led by Austina Jordan, Associate Professor of Library Science/Collection Management Librarian

There is no shortage of information in the world. Fake news abounds or so we are told. If you google “Fake News” you get 164,000,000 hits. If you search that same term in Galileo you get 465,331 results. What’s the difference? Why does it matter? Research is an integral part of the academic journey. Teachers design research based assignments with numerous objectives in mind. This session will help professors understand how students actually research, how they understand research assignments and what they do for help in the process.
