CON9.07 – Transforming the Learning of Chemistry: The Journey to a Flipped Large Year 1 Classroom (Room A227)

This session tells the story of the transformation of an interactive lecture class into a flipped classroom course supported by blended learning. The story of change will be told in a way that models the blended learning experience. Participants will view a short sample web module, the content of which is designed to help them learn about our process of developing web modules for the course content. Much of the rest of the session will model part of a face-to-face class experience in this hybrid mode of instruction by focusing on interactive activities about other aspects of the course (e.g., supporting student accessibility, use of resources, how to make use of the face-to-face class time, and using assessment tools that encourage engagement and overall retention of the course content).

This story of transformation describes the renovation of professional teaching practice and turns its attention to the conversion of somewhat passive learners into more self-directed, active learners. Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of what blended learning and a flipped classroom are, and what developing a hybrid course can entail. They will gain a sense of how blended learning can support student accessibility and promote active learning.
