Abstract

In this session we will describe our experiences with flipped classrooms and blended learning at Wesleyan University from three perspectives: instructor, instructional technology support, and the administration. We will focus on three math courses: 1) A flipped major-level course using recorded lectures created with a Livescribe Smartpen and pre- and post-class Moodle assignments; 2) A flipped sophomore-level course in which students prepared for class by jointly annotating PDF documents and taking Moodle quizzes, and 3) a blended advanced course that used Coursera video lectures originally created for a Wesleyan MOOC and which some students attended remotely (but synchronously). Petra Bonfert-Taylor will share pedagogical insights she gained from her experiences with pre- and post-class online activities, in-class activities, and engaging remote students in collaborative class activities. Jeffrey Goetz will discuss lessons learned in supporting these courses, particularly concerning the software platforms involved (Moodle, Watchitoo's "Class Interact," and Coursera). Karen Anderson will discuss some of the bigger-picture administrative issues brought to light by these courses and how Wesleyan addressed them.
