Flipped Classroom

While the flipped classroom model has gained popularity in general educational circles for the past decade, it has not yet been explored systematically for use in Jewish studies. Teachers in a flipped classroom assign short, recorded presentations for students to view on their home computers. Then, in the classroom, they review, process, apply, and expand their understanding of these materials, while actively facilitated by the teacher.  This enables students to become more actively engaged in their own learning and educators to both meet the different needs of students and individually tailor lessons.

The Lookstein Center, thanks to support from the Commission on Jewish Identity and Renewal (COJIR) of the UJA-Federation of New York, is creating an ever-expanding cadre of New York area professionals equipped with new tools, as well as developing a community of practitioners with a central repository for Jewish studies “flipped” lessons.  For more information, contact Esther Feldman.
