Flipping the classroom vitalizes seatwork time in STEM disciplines. But by that standard, the humanities classroom is already flipped. This slideshare discloses best practices for a humanities-specific "flipped" classroom experience.
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.

• Raw materials of digital pedagogy can be
shared at massive scale;
• But their application cannot.
• Even in Al Filreis’ Modern Poetry MOOC “there are
abundant office hours, discussion leaders, and even a
phone number you can call to discuss your
interpretations of the week’s poem”
17. Some F2F “procedures” are
Meeting physically in a campus room
Talking using voices
18. F2F, optimize for what a
database can’t do
Computation can build working relationships
from intimacy sparked F2F.
