Blackboard in the Flipped Classroom

Presenters: Araminta “Mina” Matthews and Robert “BJ” Kitchin, University College
This presentation elaborates methods for using Blackboard in conjunction with a flipped strategy to deliver instructional materials online, reserving face-to-face classroom time for hands-on practice and application. Students in flipped classrooms theoretically get more time applying concepts under the guidance of an expert instructor. We will discuss Blackboard tools, flipped-model guiding principles, and instructional strategies for implementing a world-class, pedagogically-designed, flipped model of instruction using a combination of video and interactive web applications within a Blackboard course shell.
