[Thematic day] Integrating digital technologies in my teaching within the new spatial dimensions of learning spaces
Brig and online
Three professors will share their experiences, tricks and tips with the inverted classroom.
You are cordially invited to attend our upcoming webinar on the Inverted Classroom model. Are you facing the challenge of not having enough time in class to cover theory and work on applications or discuss current issues? Are you looking for ways to engage your students in large classes, whether on-campus or online? The inverted classroom model might be the solution you are looking for.
Join us as we explore the opportunities and challenges of this innovative approach to teaching and learning with our expert speakers, Dr. Christian Spannagel, Dr. Ichino, and Dr. Seki. Dr. Spannagel will explain how inverted classrooms work, the opportunities they offer, and share tips and tricks for the implementation of a good inverted classroom. Dr. Ichino and Dr. Seki will share the results of a research project comparing the effect on learning of moving to an inverted classroom in an on-campus and online setting, in a very large class (around 200 students in an introductory course in economics). Their results show that although inverting the classroom has a somewhat negative effect on learning in in-person settings, it has a positive effect in online settings.
Don't miss this opportunity to learn from experts in the field and gain valuable insights on how to improve student engagement and make the most of your synchronous sessions in large classes and online learning environments.
When: Wednesday, March 08th, 2023 from 12:00 to 13:30

Christian Spannagel studied computer science at Darmstadt University of Technology. He received his doctorate on the use of digital tools in schools at Ludwigsburg University of Education. Now he is professor for mathematics and computer science education at Heidelberg University of Education. His research interests are the implementation of the inverted classroom in higher education and in schools, the use of digital media and tools in education, and open science. He has twice received the State Teaching Award of the State of Baden-Württemberg for the use of digital technologies in university teaching.
Yasukazu Ichino, Ph.D. in economics : I am a professor at the College of Economics in Ritsumeikan University, Japan. My current research interests are in international trade theory and teaching economics. After getting my doctoral degree from University of Washington in 2002, I worked at the department of Economics of Konan University in Kobe, Japan, until 2019. Then, I moved to Ritsumeikan University. Although I like both teaching and doing research, now I identify myself as a teacher rather than a researcher. I have fun preparing for class. I started implementing a flipped classroom in 2017, and now I am working on a research to evaluate the effect of the flipped classroom on students' learning.
Mai Seki : After I completed my B.A. at ICU in 2004 and M.P.P. at the University of Tokyo in 2006, both in Japan, I received a Ph.D. in Economics in 2012 from the University of Wisconsin Madison, U.S.A. I worked for the Bank of Canada, then at the JICA research institute, where I analyzed the impact of development projects in Asia and Africa. Since 2018, I have been working at the Economics department of Ritsumeikan University as an associate professor. My technical expertise is applied micro econometrics, and the interest of the study is labor economics and economics of education, anything related to human capital development (whether it is about developed or developing country)!
