Provost's Series on Instructional Excellence
Thursday, Mar. 13, 2014
Rich Etchberger, an associate professor in the Department of Wildland Resources at the Vernal Education Center, is the next presenter at the Provost’s Series on Instructional Excellence at Utah State University. Etchberger’s topic is “Getting Started with Flipped Learning.”
The presentation is Tuesday, March 18, at Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 154, on the Logan campus. The presentation will be broadcast to a number of venues around the state. (see list below)
The series is sponsored by USU’s Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.
Flipped learning is a relatively new model of learning where students complete traditional class-time materials during their own time. The materials are presented using a variety of technologies, including videos and screencasts. Then, during the scheduled class time, the instructor and students work on applications of the materials. The model allows increased interaction and personalization for the students’ education. Many instructors are interested in applying the flipped learning model to their classes but don’t know how to get started with producing the needed materials.
The overview includes the principles of multimedia instructional design and a review of the major technologies used to produce a flipped class. During the presentation Etchberger will provide examples of the equipment he uses, including cameras, microphone systems and editing software. The session includes time for questions and interaction.
Those interested in attending the session are encouraged to preview and review workshop materials online. All USU faculty are welcome.
The session can be seen throughout the state at the following USU Education Centers: Blanding, administrative conference room; Brigham City, Room 166; Ephraim, Snow West O; Moab, Room A; Price, Reeves 128; Roosevelt, SC 132; Salt Lake, Room 531; Tooele, GEC 525; and Vernal, Room B110.
