"Flipping" the Conference

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Thursday 6th June, 2013

10:45am to 11:30am (PST)

In education, a course in which an instructor delivers lectures asynchronously and online and uses the class for student work and interaction is called a "flipped classroom." This allows for greater active and participatory engagement from students, and contribution to the learning process. What would a "flipped conference" look like in the context of Apereo? If you are interested in an informal conversation, meet us at 10:45AM this Thursday in the Topaz room.

Francesca Socolick

Academic Technology Specialist

Francesca is an education and user experience enthusiast. Her unique experiences as a math teacher, outdoor educator, and web developer have created a dynamic perspective for understanding users needs across interactive web-based platforms for education. Her passion for helping shape various informal education spaces with technology include making websites a better, happier place for collaboration.

She received her BA in Psychology, with a focus in child development and cognition. Francesca then went on to apply her BA within technology and education by developing several informal advocacy based workshops as a volunteer curriculum designer overseas with one of the largest non-profit youth organizations. She was so inspired by the possibilities that technology could provide both students and educators that she pursued an MA in Instructional Technology and Media from Teachers College, Columbia University. Her MA thesis focused on how collaborative technologies, constructivist learning theories, and mobile interfaces can better foster a participatory culture for museum education across institutions.

Currently, Francesca is an Academic Technology Specialist at New York University where she serves as the Support Lead for the University's instance of Sakai CLE 2.8. In this position, Francesca is the lead instructional design consultant for the platform as well developing all training resources; Francesca also works alongside the University's faculty user group.
