About the seminar

Further to his seminar delivered on integrating a MOOC into on-campus teaching in October, Dr. Masato Kajimoto​ is offering to show us more data from the student evaluation of his online lecture experiment in the Fall semester of 2015-16. Some of his students are also joining the seminar to recount their experience of this flipped classroom arrangement. Professor Ricky Kwok will share with participants how he puts Masato’s initiative into context with the new paradigm of scaling out teaching and scaling up learning through the use of technology. We are planning to budget good enough time for you to raise questions, provide comments, and also to find out how the University might support your plans to introduce more innovative ideas in teaching and learning.
