We called for help in getting the voice of students into our blog posts. I want to thank Holly Jean Greene (University of Tennessee, Knoxville) for preparing this video for us with real, live students sharing their experiences. Thank you!

I was curious: How would students describe the classroom of today?  As an educator who teaches traditional, hybrid, and online courses, is one format more conducive to learning than another?  What are the pros and cons of each?  Most importantly, what do students need from us to succeed?

My curiosity in online, hybrid and flipped instruction ignited last summer when I attended a program offered by the Teaching Learning Center (TLC) on the campus of UT, Knoxville.   According to TLC’s  website: Flipped: A pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Hybrid: 33–79 % of the instruction is delivered through electronic means and in-class seat time is reduced.

With the help of many, my less than six minute video seeks to comfort my curiosity in an amusing yet instructive form and one of the greatest takeaways is as “old school” as it comes.
