Week 3 September 28th, 2015

  1. What teaching strategies were used in this class?
  • Brainstorming
  • Technology
  • Group Work
  • Oral Instruction
  • Independent Work
  1. What new information was learned?
  • What was new for me tonight and something I learned that I could try and do within my future classroom is the idea of a “flipped classroom”. Theflipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to exercises, projects, or discussions.
  1. What types of assessment did I use?
  • Class Discussion
  • Group Discussion
  • Individual work- learning how to complete tasks on your own.
  1. What, if any Power Structures, were disrupted during the course of this class?
  • We were given the opportunity to find information and discuss with the class afterwards what our findings were. This is different than the usual “traditional method” of teaching; where the teacher instructs and then students are given the opportunity to explore.
  1. How did Power and Authority shift in your different groupings?
  • We were in “groupings” and were able to sit with new classmates and were able to listen and learn from each other’s findings.
  1. How did this class differ from traditional University classes?
  • We were given opportunity to discuss with one another. We were able to share our ideas with each other and the instructor.
  • We then gathered back as a group, shared our ideas, and created a marking rubric together.
  1. Did power and authority shift? Who held the power? Why?
  • Power and authority shifted between the students and instructor as we both had the opportunity to share or ideas. Overall, I believe the instructor had power over the classroom to give students ques to come back together, to share our ideas, and create the rubric.
