Transcript of Inverting the Linear Algebra Classroom copy

Inverting the Linear Algebra Classroom
Student learning takes place
in two distinct phases
Assimilation >> Transmission
from a cognitive standpoint
Cognitive load
Resource availability

Inverted classroom model
Cognitive load
Resource availability
transmission OUTSIDE the class
assimilation INSIDE the class

Student learning in linear algebra might improve if the environments for transmission and assimilation were reversed
Full screencasts available at talk website
Students must grapple with most difficult concepts and cognitive tasks when instructor availability is at its lowest
Inverted classroom structure
