Best of 'Higher Ed': Turning Learning Inside Out
We all know the traditional school routine: Go to class, listen to a lecture, take notes, go home, do the homework, come back to class, repeat. What if that model were reversed, and students were producers of some of that information, instead of only consumers? In this "Best of" episode of KUT's podcast Higher Ed, Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger discuss flipping the traditional model of learning.
You might have heard about the "flipped classroom" - where students hear the lecture material outside of class and then work on questions together during class time. That's one example of inquiry-based learning, and this week Ed and Jennifer dig deeper into that topic. Click here for that discussion and to catch the solution to last week's fishing pole puzzler.
