Scrambling the Active Learning Classroom: Achieving Balance between Traditional Lecture and the Flipped Classroom
This presentation will analyze how “Scrambling” the classroom can create a learning environment that blends the best of both traditional and flipped active learning classrooms. Choosing to use lecture or active strategies for class is not a dichotomous decision. The baby doesn’t have to be thrown out with the bath water. Dr. Roberts will present principles of educational neuroscience that support using a variety of strategies, facilitate a discussion on the pros and cons of each instructional method, and walk the attendee through the creation of a simulated scrambled classroom. Both lecture-focused and active learning-focused strategies will presented that can be added to attendees personal repertoire of instructional methods.
