New e-Literate TV Episode: Flipped Classrooms and Team-based Course Design

In our final episode of the pilot series, Phil interviews George Washington University Chair and Associate Professor of Marketing Vanessa Perry about her experiences developing a flipped class, with a focus on the team course development effort. Long-time followers of the blog know that Phil and I think the transition to team-based course design is both a major barrier and a major inflection point for institutions moving into digital education.

  1. Just thought I’d mention that distance education providers such as the British Open University were doing team based course design well before the advent of the web.

    Also, the flipped classroom idea isn’t exactly new, either. The idea of replacing lectures with small discussion groups that could access video clips of the lecture was also developed long ago. In particular, Stanford’s distance education program started using Tutored Video Instruction back in the early seventies, almost forty years ago!

    What is relatively new is the idea of reusing Open Educational Resources to create course content without having to create everything from scratch and without the transaction costs and fees of using copyrighted material.
