Flipping Marvelous: Getting back in-class time for collaborative learning

Key Information

Title: Flipping Marvelous: Getting back in-class time for collaborative learning
Presenter: Michelle Lovett
Theme: Transform
Type: Presentation
Audience: Education - Secondary

Abstract

Listening is a critical skill in learning about and creating music.  Analytical and productive listening is developed through discussions, practice and application.  In a culture where students are bombarded with imagery and information, and the ears are neglected in favour of the eyes, how can meaningful listening skills be fostered in a time poor and predominantly textual or visual environment?  One possible answer is by ‘flipping’ the classroom and using Moodle to deliver interactive learning modules.

This presentation will illustrate various Moodle activities within an instructional designthat support ‘flipped’ principles and encourages student engagement. Using a course example in it’s third year of development, refined with student feedback and visualdesign theory, participants will be able to see the fusion of page content, forums, quizzes, and assignments with rich media and graphics, and discover ways to create enticing learning modules ‘flipped’ for out-of-class learning. 

Notes: Could be applicable for Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Moodle users
