How can I budget time for interactive teaching while covering the required material?
"How do I still cover the required material when interactive teaching methods take away class time?"
Consider the following tips from the video below:
- Flipped classroom techniques push content delivery outside of the classroom “I don’t have to cover everything in class” It’s not all or nothing. I can flip something or parts of the class. Students consume content outside the classroom. It does not have to be videos.
- Use JiTT (just-in-time teaching) assignments before class to ensure students consume the content thoughtfully
- Provide appropriate incentives - Stick: Points are awarded for assignment completion; Carrot: Class time is shaped by students’ questions
- Example JiTT question: “What was the most confusing part of the pre-class readings?” Usually do it the night before so you have time before class to prepare yourself to address those points.
