For the first time since Peer Instruction was developed in the 1990s, Mazur, a group of scholars from Asia and the Pacific, and Beijing Normal University are organizing a conference. Innovative educators from across the globe will connect, share, and learn about how to flip their class using this research-based method at an inaugural event this winter. The conference will be held at Beijing Normal University from December 15-16, with a pre-conference workshop led by Eric Mazur on December 14, 2012.
This looks like an excellent event. In Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) I know that may providers use the resources on http://WWW.TESOLacademic.org as input for the flipped classroom, which then allows for more engaging discussion in the classroom itself. I would love to come and talk about this at the conference, but alas these days I only do international conferences if invited to do so (and with a travel grant from the organisers). The limited funding that I have goes back into the site itself. Enjoy the conference one and all. Huw
