Restoring Value in the Classroom Experience with Experiential Learning - Jon Garfinkel, Edsurge

Delivering this benefit in the classroom is not easy. It requires faculty to rethink how they spend class time and cede some amount of structure and control. It further requires real interaction between students in class, when these same students have become accustomed to interacting primarily through online media. But it is precisely this preference that I think we can turn to our advantage. Let students learn the fundamental building blocks from online material, but do so outside of the classroom. Then, use class-time to work on complex, real-world, group-oriented problems. In short, make the classroom about experiential learning. https://www.edsurge.com/n/2015-06-12-restoring-value-in-the-classroom-experience-with-experiential-learning
