Three reasons to flip your classroom

with Laine Marshall, LIU Hudson 

Helaine (Laine) directs the Language Teacher Education Programs at LIU – Hudson – Graduate Centers of Long Island University, USA.  She collaborates with her colleague, Nancy Lemberger from LIU-Brooklyn on cross-campus online programs in TESOL and Bilingual Education.

For this session, Laine will share her experience flipping her Fundamentals of Linguistics class this spring semester for the first time. There were many surprises in what occurred when she decided to try the flip. She hopes to generate discussion on the rationale for the flipped classroom, what students and courses are best suited for this model and how it has worked out in her class.  One of her students, Edith Ramirez-Lopez, will join in to provide the learner perspective.

  4. First of all I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or tips? Thank you!
