Flipping Your Classroom: Why it Works for Developmental Education

Name of Event: NADE Conference 2014
Place of Event: Dallas, Texas
Date of Event: March 7, 2014
Title of breakout or keynote address: Flipping Your Classroom: Why it Works for Developmental Education
Name(s) and Affiliation of Speaker(s): Elizabeth Nesius, Hudson County Community College
What were some sample outcomes of the project or instructional strategies?:

Ms. Nesius outlined some key strategies for creating a partially flipped or completely flipped classroom. Creating a flipped classroom would potentially enhance student engagement in the classroom, encourage active learning by letting the classroom be the setting for applying what is learned and for direct one-on-one or small group interaction with instructor who would facilitate activities.

What were some important elements or characteristics of the project or instructional strategies?:

Flipped classes take activities that are normally completed in the classroom and assign them as homework; class time is then spent on active learning and application. Most elements of the traditional classroom can be flipped, including lectures and introductory lessons, formative assessments, presentations, and most supplemental exercises/materials.
The tools for creating flipped classrooms and the potential resources to be used were valuable; some were free, and some were not. Some of the resources mentioned were “LMS, Edmodo, Class Wiki, Google Apps, Ning.. .” The only concern was FERPA and privacy/security issues.
