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.
