Flipped Learning should be standard for Higher Education

Why Flipped Learning should be standard for Higher Education

Flipped Classroom, Higher Ed

If the flipped classroom approach yields so many positive results for high school students, I think it’s safe to assume it can do the same for their HE counterparts. University students are the perfect candidates of self-directed learning and they would thrive in a flipped learning environment. If we want them to become successful citizens of tomorrow, we need to turn the traditional model of teaching on its head.

HE Challenges: Fast changing digital teaching methods

Higher Ed

When it comes to improving completion rates, reducing tuition costs and helping universities to bridge the revenue gap, technology is part of the solution. In the case of fast changing digital teaching methods however, technology, and the need to adapt to it, is a part of the problem. Perhaps the higher education sector is due for major disruption.

HE Challenges: How some colleges are filling the revenue gap

Higher Ed

In the third blog in our series on higher education challenges, exploring how innovative colleges and universities are addressing them, we’ll look at funding. I’ll look specifically at the non-profit college sector that must increasingly seek out non‐governmental sources of revenue either to replace lost or inadequate funding or to acquire support for new research initiatives, programs, equipment, buildings, staff, and student assistance.

LMS benefits for HE

Top 5 LMS benefits for HE students

Higher Ed

An LMS for Higher Education brings in plenty of benefits for university administration and faculty members, but most of all, for students. Being able to access various learning materials, to enroll in self-paced courses and competency-based ones, to contact the person of need at the moment of need and to have a bird’s-eye view over their own progress are just five of the benefits an LMS can give HE students.

HE Challenges: Combating declining completion rates

Higher Ed

It’s not all doom and gloom in higher education when it comes to completion rates – there are great many colleges and universities that are taking their responsibilities seriously enough to implement expensive, and time consuming programs. It must also be acknowledged, though, that high schools must do their bit and ensure students arrive on their first day of college better prepared than they are today.

An argument for technical education

Higher Ed

The future of work will be more fractured and compartmentalized, so teaching very specific technical skills empowers students far more than a generalized ambition to make them creatures of extraordinary creativity and collaboration. Mastering the 4 Cs is no doubt important for students of all ages, but this shouldn’t come in the detriment of creating, developing and following more practical curricula of technical education.

TPACK framework

Why educators can no longer ignore the TPACK framework

Higher Ed, K-12, Teachers

TPACK stands for Technological Pedagogical And Content Knowledge. The core idea behind it is that a great teacher must perfectly know (Knowledge) the subject being taught (Content), how to deliver it so that a student learns it (Pedagogy) and also how to choose and use the right technology in doing so (Technology). One thing is for sure though: educators can no longer ignore the T part of the TPACK framework.

E-learning, Higher Ed, K-12, Teachers

So you’ve decided to make the leap and convert your face-to-face (F2F) class into an online course. A daunting job, even for the most tech-literate and motivated of teachers. Breaking down this project into smaller steps, and following each one with patience and tenacity will yield a great e-learning course, which will stand you — and your students — in good stead for many semesters to come.

Why it’s important to support self-directed learning in the classroom

Higher Ed, K-12, Teachers

“Self-directed learning” is a major catch-phrase of 21st Century educationalists, and undeniably a critical skill in the labor markets of the future. However, the classroom culture we have created and inherited is not designed around self-direction, and tends more towards compliant consumption. But there are ways to support self-directed learning in the classroom.
