Flipping Large Classes: Three Strategies for Engaging Students

Posted on

By Barbi Honeycutt, PhD As we continue our ongoing series focused on the flipped classroom in higher education, it’s time to tackle another frequently asked question: “How can I flip a large class?” I like this question because it’s not asking whether you can flip a large class, but rather what’s the best way to do it. Faculty who teach large classes are challenged not only by the sheer number of students but also by the physical space in the classroom. Having 100, 200, or 400+ students in class means teaching in large lecture halls with stadium seating and seats that are bolted to […]

Have you heard about the Microsoft Halolens technology that is due out in 2016? Halographic computing is coming! From what I have been reading, Halolens is going to easily surpass and learn from the failure of  Google Glass to succeed in the realm of virtual reality. The difference between AUGMENTED REALITY and VIRTUAL REALITY is the level of immersion with […]

Do you AGREE? Skill or Chance? Thoughts on “Gamification and eLearning – Should You be Considering It and Why?”

Posted on

Do you like games, being challenged, scenario-based learning, and the opportunity to apply knowledge and strategy? I do. I have always preferred games that involve skill over chance. I tend to steer clear from games that involve luck and I’ve found that I will indulge in games and contests that require cognitive processing, deductive reasoning, critical thinking, and reasoning. For example, I like the challenging Scrabble-esque, Zynga mobile app “Words with Friends” because it requires me to think. Now contrast this type of game with one that involves chance or luck like card games. While an argument could be made […]
