Current initiatives are moving college content and assessment online, but what does this mean for the hands-on and collaborative learning components of an educational experience? Team-based learning and documentation are fundamental to the learning process and are often required for professional certification in technical fields of study. The work flow and tracking process for an online student that moves offline to complete the hands-on component of their coursework in a brick and mortar setting must be seamless, and this is a growing challenge.

In this session participants will learn how the college flipped classroom experience can be adopted for the corporate training environment. You will explore research gathered over 18 months of interviews and pilot programs with more than 100 educators, administrators, and students. You will examine logistical and pedagogical challenges being navigated by instructors incorporating online technology into their teaching practice, and stories of success as schools move away from lecture-based learning and towards interactive, online communities.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How college instructors are being motivated to adopt flipped and blended instructional practices
  • The barriers to adoption of online educational tools in college classrooms
  • The benefits and disadvantages of some existing tools and platforms, from the perspective of instructors and learners
  • The kinds of solutions required to support the needs of instructors with hands-on learning components in their courses

Intermediate and advanced developers, project managers, and managers with a basic understanding of flipped and blended instructional approaches.

Technology discussed in this session:
MOOCS, LMSs, online lab tools, and digital lab books.
