Season 2, Episode 10
How do you lecture students when you no longer consider yourself a lecturer? If you’re Dr. Eric Landrum, Ph.D., you record them for students to watch outside of class. He says this flipped approach enriches the “instructional experience,” where students value collaborating together on Psychology projects during class—as opposed to procrastinating on traditionally assigned homework until the night before it’s due. Join Dr. Landrum as he discusses the flipped-classroom approach for his skills-based Psychology lessons—and what to do if you’re timid about trying it yourself.
R. Eric Landrum is a professor of psychology at Boise State University, receiving his PhD in cognitive psychology from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. His research interests center on the educational conditions that best facilitate student success as well as the use of SoTL strategies to advance the efforts of scientist-educators. He has over 400 professional presentations at conferences and published over 25 books/book chapters, and has published over 75 professional articles in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals. He has worked with over 300 undergraduate research assistants and taught over 13,000 students in 24 years at Boise State. During Summer 2008, he led an American Psychological Association (APA) working group at the National Conference for Undergraduate Education in Psychology studying the desired results of an undergraduate psychology education. During the October 2014 Educational Leadership Conference in Washington, DC, Eric was presented with a Presidential Citation from then APA President Nadine Kaslow for his outstanding contributions to the teaching of psychology.
