THURSDAY, 28 SEPTEMBER - 1pm to 2pm

PRESENTATION: Reflections on Flipping: A UWA Perspective

By Martin Forsey, Associate Professor in Anthropology and Sociology, The University of Western Australia

This will be a workshop based presentation drawing on Martin’s experience as “a flipper” and also on others from UWA that have been involved in a research project scoping student experiences in flipped classrooms. We will explore what the research shows as well as tips for shifting the focus from teaching to active learning, which is the main aim of shifting face to face engagement between lecturers and students from the delivery of content towards activities engaging the content that students have accessed in other places – usually their local LMS.
