228 studies comparing active learning to traditional lecturing

Failure Rates:
Lecturing: 34%
Active Learning: 22%

Exam Scores:
Active Learning: 6 points higher

Active Learning: "learning through activities and/or discussion in class... emphasizes higher-order thinking and often involves group work”

Traditional Lecture: "continuous exposition by the teacher"

"One of the problems with lectures—and especially in the extreme form of 'continuous exposition by the teacher'—is that we don't know what’s going on in students' heads during the exposition. So, yes, there's an opportunity for students to... dismiss, take issue, agree, and make connections, but we don't know if that's what's going on."

The Flipped Classroom
What skills do your students need to practice?
How can you have them do so during class--in a way that involves all students and makes their learning visible?
Cynthia Brame, Biology
Observing, questioning
Designing experiments
Collecting data
Analyzing data
Derek Bruff, Statistics
Determine an appropriate research question
Work with potentially messy data
Apply statistical techniques correctly
Visualize and communicate results
Your Turn:
Pick a course. Imagine a final project or assignment. List a set of skills students would need to do well on that final assignment.

Identify one skill that (a) is challenging for students to learn and (b) could be developed through in-class practice and feedback.

What is the skill and what’s one idea you have for using class time to develop it?

Don’t students need some kind of foundation before they can work with a topic?

Authentic Audiences

Bass & Elmendorf (2010)
Making Screencasts
Keep it short. (6-9 minutes)
Use visuals to clarify.
Eliminate distractions.
Use guiding questions.

Pre-Class Assignments
Keep them manageable.
Require a submission.
Put some points on the line.
Teach as if they've done the work.
Your Turn:
Select a topic you teach. Generate a list of learning goals for this topic. Order the list so that later goals build on earlier goals, like scaffolding. Then brainstorm ideas for a "first exposure" (before class or during class) you can provide your students that helps them achieve one or more basic learning goals.
Derek's Story: http://derekbruff.org/?p=1894
Backward Faded Scaffolding
What do these learning spaces say about the kinds of learning activities that are meant to occur during class?
Your Turn:
Select a topic you might teach. Brainstorm a flipped classroom lesson plan, identifying what pre-class “first exposure” would be appropriate for the topic, how class time could be used to provide students with opportunities for practice and feedback, and what further exploration might be necessary for students after class.

Identify where in this sequence of activities an explanatory lecture or screencast would be most useful. As a first exposure? After practice as a form of feedback? As part of further exploration?

Please note that these lesson plans need not be detailed—the focus is on the sequence of learning activities.
