Class Time Reconsidered – Motivating Student Participation and Engagement

I’m at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, today and tomorrow thanks to the good people at the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS). I’m giving a talk here in about an hour titled “Class Time Reconsidered: Motivating Student Participation and Engagement.” My goal is to share some frameworks and strategies for engaging students in the classroom by taking a few common assumptions about teaching and learning and flipping them on their heads.  Here’s my Prezi, complete with one well-timed flip:

Many of my references are embedded in the Prezi itself, so feel free to click the links you see there.

Thanks to Georgetown University and CNDLS for bringing me here. I’m looking forward to the talk today and to tomorrow’s talk on clickers and participatory culture.
