Baker, J.W. (1999, Sept. 01). From Instructional Method to Instructional Media
. Instructional Design Institute, Cedarville College, Cedarville, OH.
Emphasizes starting with the educational need and for technologies to "be 'handmaidens' to your goals; mentions "The Classroom Flip" as an approach.
Starts with the two "converging trends": (1) changes in the way of thinking about teaching and learning (using Barr & Tagg's (1995) paradigm shift from Instruction to Learning) and (2) new information technologies from connecting computers with telecommunications.
First presentation of the "Classroom Flip" model.
The same as the CIC presentation, but is provided since it goes with the conference paper that was published in the proceedings.
Marks a shift in the approach used in the Ameritech/OFIC workshops: from starting with technology to starting with teaching and learning goals using the "Classroom Flip" model.
Adds a new section to the previous presentations that lays out the "Ohio Model for Institutional Collaboration" from the Ameritech/OFIC program; starts to break out of the linear structure of PowerPoint by providing hyperlinks from an opening menu.
Provides a menu of topics with hyperlinks to allow the audience to set the structure of the discussion; expands the examples of the use of the "Classroom Flip" and formalizes the discussion to include Feature, Benefits, Examples and Classroom Changes resulting from the use of various learning technologies. The change in the subtitle reflects some pushback from faculty on the "Guide by the Side" notion, which they felt marginalized the role of the faculty member in the classroom.
Emphasized the shift in faculty development from starting with the technologies to starting with educational goals and, once again, to have the technology serve the educational needs. Starts the "If I could fix one thing . . ." approach as a way to help faculty identify their instructional needs.
Starts with the "Seven Principles" from Chickering and Gamson (1987) (as presented in Chickering and Ehrmann (1996)); helps faculty work through what they need to learn both in terms of educational strategy and the use of a technology to implement the strategy; includes screen shots from Blackboard, WebCT and Jenzabar to show how the settings for online quizzes can be used to make the quizzes more pedagogically effective for formative assessment. These two presentations become the core of the "Classroom Flip" curriculum.
Reflects some major leaps in the development of the model: all seven principles from Chickering and Gamson (1987) are presented, along with the initial goals for the model; the diagram of the "Flip" is expanded; adds other material from the "Classroom Flip" curriculum and a time audit for managing a "flipped" class.
Baker, J.W. (2002, June 7a). "We must all hang together . . .": Lessons Learned from the SBC Ameritech Faculty Development Technology Program. Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities' "Bird of a Feather" Conference, Des Moines, Iowa.
This conference introduced the program Ameritech (now a part of SBC) had funded for Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin to Iowa; provides a good overview of the development of the program, starting from the first workshops in 1996. (Note: The testimonials from faculty were audio files played from the PowerPoint slides.)
Uses Rodgers' Diffusion of Innovation research to set up the need to bring in faculty beyond the innovators and early adopters, thus the "Middle 60%." A number of "Strategic Tips" gleaned from the Ameritech experience are presented to help accomplish that goal.
This uses the TELR presentation as its basis, but adds to it more screenshots from Blackboard, WebCT and Jenzabar to show how a CMS can be used to support the learning goals for the class.
This further expands the examples, including screenshots from Discus and QuestionMark, as well as screenshots of the Online Readings from my Media Convergence class and Gallery of Images for my Image and Word in a Visual Culture class.
A recent example of the "Classroom Flip" presentation spruced up and connected to the "Pedagogy & the Role of the CMS" module from the "Classroom Flip" curriculum.
