SVC Education Club Presents Talk by Aaron Sams
Organization: Saint Vincent College
Description: Saint Vincent College Education Club will present a talk by educator, consultant and author Aaron Sams, pioneer creator of the flipped classroom, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2 in the Robert S. Carey Student Center Performing Arts Center. Admission is free and open to the public.
Sams is the president and CEO of Sams Learning Designs, LLC. He has been an educator since 2000 and is currently the director of digital learning at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh.
He frequently speaks and conducts workshops on educational uses of screencasts and The Flipped Classroom concept. The flipped classroom model encompasses any use of Internet technology to leverage the learning in a classroom so teachers can spend more time interacting with students instead of lecturing. This is most commonly being done using teacher-created videos or vodcasting that students view outside of class time. He believes strongly in inquiry and in student-centered learning environments in which students are encouraged to learn and demonstrate their understanding in ways that are meaningful to them.
Location: Robert S. Carey Student Center Performing Arts Center, Saint Vincent College, Latrobe
