Engaging Busy Educators With Flipped PD

Abstract

I have recently been leading educators in professional development at my private university. Our campus is one campus in a university system composed of 32 campuses with approximately 8000 faculty and over 100,000 students at the high school, undergraduate and graduate level. Much of our faculty training is top-down and difficult to navigate.

I customized my badge with keywords and the title I want on my business cards.

Over the past two years I have been planting my own style of courses to my colleagues. At first I offered local courses based on requests of my colleagues and have expanded my offer to purely online courses in an asynchronous format while keeping the social element high to foster engagement.

In this session, I plan to share my experiences as well as show feedback from my colleagues on my PD style.

Creating a Culture of Sharing, Caring and Mastery

Abstract

My goal as a facilitator of educational experiences is focused on creating a sharing culture where students not only take responsibility for their own educational pace but also contribute to the learning of their peers. The first half of this session is sharing the technology and techniques I use to foster this environment inside and outside of my classroom.P1170047

I view my main task as getting my students excited about learning computing science to increase their chances of a successful student and professional life. I still need to create formative and summative assessments to ensure they are prepared for the courses that follow. I use common tools as well as my own custom testing platform for in my courses. In the second half of this session, I will share those tools and experiences with the audience. The tools I use could be easily adapted to all levels and topics.
