EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) – It is a trend gaining momentum in classrooms and now a conference is coming to East Lansing later today for curious teachers who might want to change the way they teach.
It is called Flipped Learning and it is a different way for instructors to pass information to their students.
In a traditional class, students show up, they listen to a lecture, and are assigned homework based on that lecture. In flipped learning, students have the day’s lectures ahead of time then in class they get face to face time with the teacher to ask specific questions about the subject. After class they will review the material and make sure they understand it.
Later today the 8th Annual Flipped Learning conference will begin on MSU’s campus and will continue until Wednesday. The conference will have guest speakers including the co-founders of this learning concept as well as teachers who have already incorporated Flipped Learning in their classrooms.
