Distance learning -- Evaluation, Computer-assisted instruction


A "flipped classroom" assigns lecture learning for homework and uses in-person class time for hands-on practice with the instructor's support. It's an exciting model, but how can it work for distance students? Portland State University's Senior Inquiry program offers high school seniors a PSU Freshman Inquiry course at their schools for college credit. This lightning talk outlines how the Distance Learning Librarian at PSU used LibGuides, Google Docs, YouTube, and lots of friendly reminders to help teachers flip information literacy instruction for these distance students.
