Session 203: Blended Learning, Flipped Classrooms, and Other Innovative Teaching Techniques

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

By mixing face-to-face teaching with computer-mediated instruction, teachers at the K-12 and college levels are creating more flexible learning environments, where students can progress through their lessons at their own pace and get personalized help if needed. Computer software can provide self-guided lessons and flag problems for instructors who can then work with particular individuals or groups who need additional help.  Different models of blended learning are being applied across the country.  This panel, which will consist of practitioners, will examine the pros and cons of the various techniques.
