Flipping the Course: some unintended learning outcomes

Date: 
Thursday, 12 April, 2018 - 12:30 to 14:00

Speaker:  Dr David Mole
                Adjunct Professor, Division of Environment and Sustainability

Venue:  Room 6558 (Lifts 27-28)

Workshop Overview:

Introduction to Sustainability (SUST 1000) was approved for the undergraduate common core in June 2016. The course has been delivered four times, with each delivery taken as an opportunity to increase the use of in-class time for activities, rather than for content delivery. This process has been one of discovery – how to handle the on-line materials, how to set up in-class activities, how to assess for learning. As in any teaching endeavor, we are the ones who have learned the most, both about the subject and about how to deliver it. This presentation is an opportunity to share some of these unintended learning outcomes.

About the Speaker:

David Mole was educated at Cambridge University, the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto, where he earned a PhD in Political Economy. After a period with City University of Hong Kong, he joined HKUST in 2005 and became Associate Vice President (T&L). After his retirement, he was fortunate to be given the opportunity to develop his long-term interest in the challenge of sustainability. As an Adjunct Professor in the Division of Environment and Sustainability, he continues to contribute to undergraduate education, including the approval and delivery of the common-core course Introduction to Sustainability.
