The flip and the flop: Participant structures that promote inquisitive inquiry
Presenter: Erik Johnson, Department of Music
Event Contact: Debora Colbert
Date: September 22, 2016
Location: TILT 104
Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Description: Differences in collaborative and cooperative learning have often been confused and led to misunderstandings of their functions in promoting engaged student learning. Furthermore, popular teaching methods such as “the flipped-classroom” often fall short of their intended learning outcomes due to conceptual misconceptions and dissonances between collaborative and cooperative educational models. Applicable to a broad array of disciplines, this lunchtime discussion will examine two participant structures – IRE and HEI – to help teachers to bring new understandings to problem-based learning, inquisitive inquiry, and discipline-specific engagement.
