Building Your Classroom without Walls

My November GETinsight blog post is now live and I'd like to invite you to participate in our office hour discussion next week on Wednesday, November 17th at 12:00noon. 

This month we'll be discussing the post "Building Your Classroom without Walls," which delves into an inquiry about whether "lecturing to" students during class time fosters relevant skills for today's information society.   In this post, I offer an alternative instructional model, used in my own teaching, that shifts passive learning online, freeing up classroom time for active, more personalized learning experiences. I hope you'll find this topic relevant to your campus discussions about blended learning and new pedagogical approaches and encourage you to share your own practical strategies, as well, so we can learn from one another.
