Steve McCrea, presenter
We’ve heard about the benefits of “differentiating lessons” and “personalizing and individualizing” the class work.
We’ve heard about engaging students by reducing “teacher talking time” and promoting discussions.
There’s a new expression: A professor in North Carolina has popularized this concept.The “Flip Your Classroom” workshop can be tailored to a half-hour interactive session, followed by one-on-one weekly email and telephone interactions with teachers
The workshop’s format is flexible:
I can interact with up to 20 participants.
It will help if we have access to computers and internet, but it is not necessary.
Free ebooks and youtube videos.
Flexible. I’ll work with your participants. If they have no time before the workshop, we can quickly bring participants up to speed.
The basic information is delivered either before the workshop (via youtube or email) or in the workshop (15 minutes for the basic information).
Highly interactive. 15 minutes of pre-workshop prep is helpful, usually at least one day ahead, including a short email exchange with participants. Information is presented in module of 3 to 5 minutes followed by interaction between participants to transfer the information to long-term memory. Stretching breaks are every 20 minutes and small group work is emphasized over a fully-guided presentation.
New information takes multiple exposures to transfer from working memory to long-term memory. We recommend a 2-7-30-90 followup.
short email exchange with each participant.
email or telephone call to check about applying the techniques
optional video visit” where the participant makes a few photos of the changes made in the classroom (with feedback from the workshop presenter)
optional email or phone call review. What additional techniques can be added or reinforced?

I decided to stop lecturing several years ago and my students have been active and engaged in class ever since. But once in a while I slip back into that lecturing habit, and the minute I do, my students also slip back into that stupor that made me abandon the practice in the first place.
