Come and learn about "Active Learning in a Flipped Class" at a Faculty Showcase on March 4, 2016 at noon in Alkek Room 148 and online.
The event is sponsored by Instructional Technologies Support (ITS). Our featured speaker is Dr. Gail Ryser, Director, Testing, Research Support, and Evaluation Center. Dr. Ryser is also a Research Fellow and Project Manager for the Initiative for Interdisciplinary Research Design and Analysis at Texas State University. In these roles she provides support to faculty at Texas State who have research questions on quantitative methodology topics.
Dr. Ryser will present on her "flipped" course, which is a doctoral level education course titled Quantitative Research Design & Analysis. The flipped model requires students to read course material and watch short lecture videos before class meetings. Class time is devoted to learning activities that engage students in assimilating concepts through discussions and problem-solving.
Dr. Ryser will show how she organizes her course online in TRACS, and in the classroom. She will share her experience in teaching the course, including lessons learned and what students thought about the class. A question and answer session follows the presentation.
This is a brown bag event, so feel free to bring your lunch. Water and sweet and salty snacks will be provided. Plan to arrive by 11:45am or earlier as the program will begin promptly at noon.
