Scott McLeod of CASTLE is hosting a free webinar on the ‘flipped classroom.’
Despite its now-famous Dan-Pink-sponsored affiliation with our esteemed colleague, Karl Fisch, is the ‘flipped classroom’ a true innovation or just a new label on the old stale wine of lectures? Is it something we should be encouraging or discouraging? If it has benefits, are they worth the accompanying drawbacks? Please join us for a lively, 1-hour online discussion about the ‘flipped classroom.’
WHEN: June 15, 2:00pm to 3:00pm Central Standard Time (Chicago).
