CDE and Sonic Foundry Study Shows Flipped Classrooms Are on the Rise

First there was lecture capture. A time when professors could record their classrooms without changing the way they taught.

Then came flipped classrooms – the lecture-first, discussion-later response to an increasing demand by students for a more personalized education experience.

While the flipped model has been a mainstay at some of the best institutions over the past decade, including MIT and Cornell, adoption is rising rapidly. Now, for the first time, comes faculty insights into what it takes to deploy this technology-driven pedagogy, which is anything but teaching as usual.

The Center for Digital Education, in partnership with Sonic Foundry, has just completed the first in-depth, national survey on faculty perspectives of flipped classrooms.  They’re ready to present their findings, including the fact that despite the time and resources it takes to launch a flipped course, the model shows the overwhelming majority of faculty – 97% – report that their initiatives are successful.

Join us for this free webinar where you’ll learn the good, the bad and the most surprising reasons flipped classrooms might just be the key to the future of academia, including:

  • The main drivers – both at departmental and faculty levels – for adopting the flipped model
  • How creating a personalized learning experience impacts student performance, retention and grades
  • The shifting expectations of student and faculty when it comes to pre-class lectures, in-class projects and discussions and individual responsibilities
  • A gauge of both faculty and student attitudes of the flipped classroom
  • The learning curve and lack of resources when it comes to teaching with technology
