Lehman College is fully represented this year and many of our fellow Lehman faculty members are presenting along with Steve Castellano and me. Here’s the description:

Lehman Flips: Techniques for a Hybrid Classroom
In Lehman’s “flipped” classrooms, exercises that used to be ‘homework’ have shifted to the classroom, leaving faculty free from the lecture approach to offer personalized guidance and interaction. Lehman faculty are flipping instructional methods, reversing roles and changing minds: developing podcast video lectures using Camtasia and VoiceThread, utilizing CUNY Commons docs, Web2.0, e-discussion boards and audience response iClickers to heighten and stimulate collaboration, engage students and help determine levels of retention.

About Alyson Vogel

I started in education 10 years ago starting a media center and television studio for students in District Ten in the Bronx. Middle school students and teachers were introduced to media and media literacy projects designed for active learning in real world contexts. For the past 5 years I have been an academic program developer, coach and workshop leader. I have significant expertise in course design, curriculum planning, online teaching, training, coaching & mentoring and major event logistics & execution. My emphasis is on integrating the Internet and new media into teaching and learning. My background in television and radio, teaching teachers in K-12 through Higher Education, professional life coaching, and yes, even my newly acquired professional chef skills brings depth to my latest position of Associate Director of Online Education at Lehman College. I am very excited to be among this group of professionals to take my understanding of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning to even greater heights.
