Description

Preparing high-quality special education teachers is an essential purpose of special education teacher education programs. High quality teacher preparation results in teachers who are less likely to leave teaching in the future. Educators are also developing ways to personalize learning, using technology such as video and other digital simulations to alter traditional models of teaching and learning. One alternative model gaining attention is “Flipped Learning”. Flipped learning reverses a traditional model of in-class lecture followed by homework. The roles and responsibilities of instructor and student often require a new or enhanced skill set where the instructor designs intentional learning experiences to engage students outside of the classroom. The learner becomes accountable for exploring online materials in a self-directed manner, attempting to gain foundational knowledge before class, and then actively applying it in the collaborative classroom. Flipping a classroom is emerging as a unique approach to improving learner retention and transfer of information, while making efficient use of class time. The purpose of this presentation is to report on the effectiveness of flipped learning when preparing special educators in higher education settings.
