"How Your Colleagues are Flipping and Blending Their Courses"

"How Your Colleagues are Flipping and Blending Their Courses"

Friday, March 6, 2015 - 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Last summer, a number of UNI faculty spent a week learning about “flipping” and “blending” their courses using different kinds of technology. In this session, three of them share what they’ve done and how students have responded. Brian Warby, political science, will discuss how he’s integrating flipped and blended exercises into his courses. Roberta Roth, management, will discuss how she structured flipped lessons and their effectiveness in three MIS courses. Kim Cline-Brown, biology, will discuss pre-class mini lectures/podcasts: What do students think about having podcasts? Do they actually review them before class? She’ll also discuss lessons learned from trying to flip a class of 80-120 students.

A second session will showcase three other faculty members on Monday, March 30, at 3:00 p.m. in Room 378, Rod Library.

Theatre UNI Presents: Avenue Q

Theatre UNI Presents: Avenue Q

Friday, March 6, 2015 - 7:30 pm

Avenue Q is the story of Princeton, a recent college graduate (who just happens to be a puppet) and his search for his life’s great purpose. Since Princeton was an English major, he struggles to find work, and ends up renting an apartment on Avenue Q; the only neighborhood he can afford. There he meets some of the most interesting people, and puppets, and monsters that a struggling young person could ever encounter.  Together they explore topics like the true meaning of a mix-tape, what the internet is really for, racism, and what to do when life seems too overwhelming and hard. Avenue Q received the Tony Award for Best Musical when it opened on Broadway and is an audience favorite around the world.
