  3. 3. STEM Flip <> HUM Flip In STEM disciplines, “Flipping” means doing “homework” in the classroom & watching vid lectures at home. STEM lectures are fastpaced content delivery & edification of textbook. In HUM & related disciplines, classroom experience is already “Flipped”: learners actively interpret, debate and make meaning both individually and collaboratively. Lecture is dynamic & responsive. Vid flattens a hum lecture from 3D to 2D. @kathiiberens
  4. 4. HUM: “Flip” Graded Work The Classroom is already “Flipped” Hum & other interpretive disciplines assess performance individually. BUT… post-univ work environments are collaborative & virtual. Broaden assessed work to include collaborative authorship. @kathiiberens
