What is my partially flipped classroom?Background:CSU, Chico- Northern California residential campus, with MS programsIntro Geology: - GE with a lab- 100 + students, not science majors (most)- lab taught by TAs, separate from lecture- 2 lectures per week (50 min)Getting the Most of Introductory Courses Spring 2014 Workshophttp://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/RACHEL TEASDALE, CSU, CHICO intro/virtual2014/program.html

What is my partially flipped classroom?I didnt know either!- Get rid of text material in class- Have time to do more investigations/interactive activities- Motivated by wanting to interact more with students- Motivated by students inactivity 3.

A PARTIALLY FLIPPED CLASSROOM FOR INTRODUCTORY GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICO2. What is a flipped classroom?- Why do it (even partially)?a. Research on student learning (e.g. Hake, 1998) Pre- vs. post-course test (6000 physics students) significantly more student learning in courses with interactive-engagementmethods than traditional style lecture (including >100students) 6. A PARTIALLY FLIPPED CLASSROOM FOR INTRODUCTORY GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICO2. What is a flipped classroom?- Why do it (even partially)?b. Attitudinal Researchc. My informal observations (no statistical validation)improved attendance (& data from Yuretich, 2001)students involved in their own learning, its not high school, raiseexpectations & theyll exceed them!students engaged in course content during classd. Sometimes I get bored myself(Yuretich, 2001) 7. A PARTIALLY FLIPPED CLASSROOM FOR INTRODUCTORY GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICO1. What is a flipped classroom?2. What is a partially flipped classroom?3. What is my partially flipped classroom?Use class time for case studies, investigations, synthesis and group activities- DAILY!Skip the textbook stuff- they can get introductory content from readings outside of class(& take graded reading quizzes)Structure of my class:Students earn points for doing what I want them to doa. Readings assignments (w/ Bb quizzes that close before class)b. Examsc. Labsd. Participation during class 8. A PARTIALLY FLIPPED CLASSROOM FOR INTRODUCTORY GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICO3. What is my partially flipped classroom?Pods(self-assigned seats)Goals1: Interactive/pod activity each class period2: I get something from students each class3: Incorporate local geology (place based)4: Use of data, scientific collaboration, convey how science works 9.

What is my partially flipped classroom?1: Interactive/pod activity each class period2: I get something from students each class3: Incorporate local geology (place based)4: Use of data, scientific collaboration, convey how science worksLocate as many of thefollowing features aspossible (on your own,then in pod):Coast Range, Sierra Nevada MtnsCascade VolcanoesBasin & Range, SAFGreat ValleySutter Buttes, Sacramento RiverFor discussion:How does Sacramento River play into politics of California? 11. A PARTIALLY FLIPPED CLASSROOM FOR INTRODUCTORY GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICOVolcano Exploration Project: Pu`u `O`o (VEPP)3. What is my partially flipped classroom?1: Interactive/pod activity each class period2: I get something from students each class3: Incorporate local geology (place based)4: Use of data, scientific collaboration, convey how science worksExample: VEPP-HVOMonday MorningMeeting (Jigsaw)1. Day 1: Each pod assumes the role of a volcano specialist in:- tilt - GPS data - seismic data - gravity - WebcamPods discuss data and trends of time period2. Day 2: Reconfigure to one specialist per group:Discuss all data types, trends; what data collectively mean,interpretation/forecast3. Class discussion, compare group interpretations with real eventshttp://nagt.org/nagt/teaching_resources/vepp/examples/48383.html 12.

What is my partially flipped classroom?1: Interactive/pod activity each class period2: I get something from students each class3: Incorporate local geology (place based)4: Use of data, scientific collaboration, convey how science worksInvestigation: How would an episode of massive globalwarming or a glacial period affect North America?Their calculations show100% glacial melt = 79.8 m (= 262 ft) SL rise10% glacial melt = 7.9 m (= 25.9 ft)What does it mean locally?For other areas (Historic? Hometown?Economic- NYC Wall Street?Ag. areas etc.)INVESTIGATION From Text: Reynolds Exploring Earth 13. A PARTIALLY FLIPPED CLASSROOM FOR INTRODUCTORY GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICO3. What is my partially flipped classroom?Assessing of student learning1. Formative Assessment: student feedback in discussions, group work, fromscratch paper responses, foot stomping2. Summative Assessment: ExamsExam Questions = same format as pre/class activities:multiple choice questions + short answer questions, map stuffInteractivity: Group Exams:1st day of exam is individual exam: MC + short answer,worth 2/3 of exam score2nd day of exam is optional, in podsworth 1/3 of exam scoreResults : 2nd day of exam scores = avg score increases by ~7 points (out of 100) 14. A PARTIALLY FLIPPED CLASSROOM FOR INTRODUCTORY GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY CHICOLearning curve for both instructors and students Instructors: develop good questions, analyze studentresponses, incorporate information into class asapAdvice? PLAN PLAN PLAN! Start small Steal resources (SERC)Be ok with stuff notworking the 1st time-revise& move on3. What is my partially flipped classroom? Strict structure- stick to the schedule (exams, deadlines,office hours- more students come!) Ask for advice/help/suggestions- colleagues, listserv,the students in class, other students!
