Georgia Gwinnett College-2015-Restructure Instructional Delivery, -Flipped Classrooms, Other/Undefined

Year: 
2016

A primary focus of GGC’s efforts in restructuring instructional delivery has been the development and delivery of active, engaging courses that include authentic discipline-based experiences. The primary efforts on this initiative have been housed in the STEM disciplines and in teacher education. The new nursing program has also crafted a curriculum that invests heavily in active learning and authentic experiences in the field. The STEM disciplines have been working collaboratively over several years to redesign classes and laboratory exercises to involve students in authentic research every semester of undergraduate enrollment. Pre-education majors are provided an opportunity to work in after-school tutoring programs, which expose them to children at various levels of development and academic attainment. In addition, the Nursing program used a flipped classroom design for all their courses and makes extensive use of state-of-the-art simulation classrooms to engage students in additional experiential learning. Further, the faculty within the Schools of Business and Liberal Arts engage in continual professional development in course design and pedagogy to create engaging courses and promote deep learning and development in their students.
