Episode 40: Case Study: How One Professor Used the Flipped Classroom Model and Interteaching in an Intro Course with Dr. Caitlin Faas
Description: In episode 40 of the Lecture Breakers podcast, Dr. Caitlin Faas joins us for a case study episode!
This means we are going to dig into one specific teaching and learning strategy and analyze it so you can learn from a colleague’s experience as you think about trying something new in your course.
In this case, Caitlin, a psychology professor, is going to share her experience flipping an introductory Psychology course for the first time.
I appreciate her honesty as she shares what worked, what didn’t work, and most importantly what she learned. Now that the course has been taught this way for the past 7 years, she reflects on this journey and shares tips for how you can embrace and reframe “failure” which is what she felt the first time she used the flipped approach.
Another thing I really appreciated is how she continued to learn and make adjustments rather than giving up. She knew it was the right direction and she persevered and created a valuable and meaningful learning experience for her and for her students. And she published a research article about her experience!
What you'll learn:
What to do (and not do) when thinking about redesigning your course using the flipped classroom model.
How to introduce the flipped classroom model to your students.
What types of structure you need to put into place before you flip your class.
How she used the flipped classroom model and interteaching to create an engaging, meaningful, and fun learning experience.
How she used a study guide and textbook to help students stay organized, know what to expect, and come to class prepared and ready to participate.
The 6 pieces of advice to consider when preparing to try something new and experiment in your course.
