...flipping the script!

Jen2_1500Dr. Jennifer Dixon is a postdoc who is currently working on the “Flipping the Script” geoscience video project with Dr. David McConnell. Jennifer is developing short video-based resources and testing their impact on student learning and metacognitive judgments in comparison to traditional textbook readings. The videos are also being tested as a component of a “flipped-classroom” approach, in which some content delivery is shifted to video format and class meetings involve greater participation in active-learning strategies. Jennifer is responsible for the unique hand-drawn illustrations that are incorporated into each video. One goal of the project is to make these resources using materials that are in the public domain or available through Creative Commons licenses or ones we create ourselves.
