Session Title

Flipping the Classroom: Lessons Learned (Year Two Redux)

Description

This session will discuss the experience of the librarians at the University of St. Thomas who have incorporated flipped classroom techniques into their library's instruction program. The librarians will describe their two years of experience using this new format. They will explain what they learned during their first year (the good, the bad, and the really bad), the steps they took to improve the course the second year, and why others may want to implement this learning method into their information literacy instruction. The presenters will discuss best practices in preparing online lectures and other class materials for use in an inverted classroom. They will demonstrate the features of the new versions of Adobe Captivate (version 8) and Adobe Presenter (version 10) and explain the benefit of including video with Techsmith's Camtasia software. Finally, they will evaluate student performance and the benefits and drawbacks of using this particular teaching method.
