Chair: Dr. Allan Yuen, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong
In this sharing session, Prof. Glofcheski will introduce his flipped classroom concept that he uses in his compulsory tort law course at the University of Hong Kong. Tort Law is a fundamental and required course in the law curriculum. After teaching tort law for many years to a large cohort (200+) of students, Prof. Glofcheski identified the possibility to make change from the conventional law teaching. He designed and introduced a series of measures oriented toward a more learner-centered, more authentic and more sustainable learning in which students play a more active role in the construction of their learning. Prof. Glofcheski will share his experiences, starting from the inception of the idea, consultation with students, the implementation, the physical setting, the interface with Moodle-based resources, student feedback and problems encountered along the way.
