Inside Higher Ed has a new webinar coming on December 7, 2017.

“Flipping the classroom” is an idea that has arrived in full force in higher education, and is part of broader movements as well. The basic idea is to move away from using class time for lecturing, and to instead provide that information in video form so students can review it ahead of time. This makes it possible to use class time engaged in truly active learning.

And of course there are many other ways to promote active learning in the classroom. These days even research universities not historically known to focus on teaching are pushing new efforts to promote active learning – and these efforts appear to be working.

This webcast will explore some of the many ways colleges are promoting flipped classrooms and other innovations in teaching.

​Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these topics Thursday, December 7 at 2:00 PM ET.

Thomas Mennella, “The Hidden Costs of Active Learning”

Mennella gets right to the point in the opening of his article: “Flipped and active learning truly are a better way for student to learn, but they also may be a fast track to instructor burnout.”  He continues:

I am an active learning college instructor and I’m tired.  I don’t mean end-of-the-semester and need-some-sleep tired.  I mean really, weary, bone-deep tired.”

His foray into active learning began when his school became an iPad institution, with all incoming freshmen getting iPads.  He continues on discussing the workload that this change has brought as he has implemented active learning and a flipped classroom.  It provides an interesting perspective of someone who supports the pedagogy, but things other things in the institution have to change to support the change in pedagogy.
