Medical Education Grand Rounds, Tuesday, October 1st, Featuring CFT Associate Director Cynthia Brame
The Office for Health Sciences Education, Educator Development Core and the Academy for Excellence in Teaching presents “Flipping the Classroom”
In a recent article, this month’s speaker, Cynthia Brame, Ph.D., Assistant Director, at the Vanderbilt Center for Teaching, characterized “flipping the classroom” as providing students with initial exposure to new material outside of class, usually via reading or lecture videos, and then using class time to do the harder work of assimilating that knowledge, perhaps through problem-solving, discussion, or debates. Many of us may be considering “flipping our classroom” and may be wondering how it can be done to impact our students’ learning.
Join us on Tuesday October 1 for “Flipping the Classroom.” Dr. Brame will help us understand the essential characteristics, benefits, and challenges of the flipped classroom as well as provide suggestions about planning flipped classroom sessions.
Due to institution-wide cost cutting efforts, we can no longer provide a boxed lunch with your registration. Please bring a brown bag lunch and attend this month’s presentation with Dr. Brame.
