Subject: Instructional Technology Brown Bag Seminar
Date: September 3, 2013 2:43:40 PM EDT

This week Kathleen Hoag from the College of Natural Science will present "Pros and Cons of Flipping an Undergraduate Science Course" at the brown bag seminar series.

TIME:  Friday, September 6 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.

PLACE:  Room 105 Natural Science Building.

In the fall of 2012, Dr. Hoag "flipped" the undergraduate Clinical Immunology (BLD 434) she teaches.  BLD 434, which enrolls between 150-200 students per semester, is required for all Biomedical Laboratory Science and Clinical Laboratory Science students, and is also taken by a large number of Human Biology students, especially pre-medical and pre-professional students.  Dr. Hoag recorded and posted the lecture content on ANGEL. Class time was used for discussion of learning objectives and course content. iClickers were used to help students' assess their content knowledge.  Students worked in teams of six for class discussions. Dr. Hoag will present the course organization in more detail (with examples), identify pros and cons of teaching a flipped       undergraduate science course, and describe strategies she now uses to address the encountered "cons". Come and learn from her experience!

This session will be of special interest to anyone who is interested in changing the dynamics of their classroom. 

Everyone is invited to attend.
