Join us for an overview of how to use inverted classroom pedagogy to create rich and engaging content, communication activities, assessments and student application opportunities in blended and online courses. We will provide best practices for how to best use synchronous and asynchronous technology tools to meet the objectives of your courses, particularly using web conferencing tools like Blackboard Collaborate, etc. For example, you have developed great content for your students to interact with; what will you have them do with it or each other to retain new knowledge and apply it to their lives? How can you engage students to work together to learn from one another? How can you take on a facilitative role to better serve your students? What tools can you use to empower and enable your students to thrive, which are also aligned to the objectives of the course? We will explore this and more.
