In this webinar, Ricci Wesselink presents on how the Waikato Institute of Technology changed their traditional educational model to improve student outcomes and pass rates for the health science courses.
Adapting the Teaching of Nursing Students During Lockdown with Flipped Classrooms and Blended Learning Techniques
By taking the traditional model of a two hour lecture, two hour lab, and one hour of homework and converting the lecture content into lessons using a cloud based platform, Wintec was able to introduce more diversity into the ways that students experience the science they were learning. With blended learning and flipped classrooms they were able to introduce a model where students experience pre-learning followed by a lab and discussion, ultimately improving mean grades by 10-20%. While Flipped and Blended learning are equally as valuable for onsite learning, they can be particularly useful in the COVID-19 environment for remote and hybrid learning.
Key Topics Include:
- Blended Learning techniques
- Flipped Classroom techniques
- Approaches to teaching in the health sciences during lockdown with remote or hybrid models
- Delivering improved student outcomes
- New online learning platforms for authoring content and active learning
