KU teams seek ways to improve classroom experience

KSAL StaffJanuary 11, 2014

A University of Kansas task force exploring ways to update the classroom experience says one option is to minimize the amount of lecturing and using class time to work on problems and projects.

Students in that kind of “flipped” class would read and watch lectures on their own time. Associate professor and task force member Andrea Greenhoot says in-class lectures would not be abandoned, with instructors able to offer “mini-lectures” in areas where students are struggling.

Other options the task force is considering include seeking ways to increase the use of technology in the classrooms.

Task force chairwoman Ruth Ann Atchley told the Lawrence Journal-World young people live in an environment where they’re inundated with knowledge, so lectures might not always be the best way to transmit information.
