In response to our recent post about Eric Mazur’s profile in Harvard Magazine, a reader pointed us to the case of CS 20, Professor Harry R. Lewis’s “Discrete Mathematics for Computer Science.” The course started out “with 15-minute mini-lectures followed by work in groups with TFs and prof wandering around. Now the lecture is recorded ahead of time and the class is entirely working in groups. I visited last week. It’s pretty awesome to watch, and the students seem to really like it.”
Here’s the course website: http://www.seas.harvard.edu/courses/cs20/ I’d recommend reading the “Active Learning” section – it’s a wonderful case study in constructing a flipped classroom, and in crafting a strong “course philosophy” statement within a syllabus.
