Another FaCTS Mellon Project

Use of Inverted Teaching to Facilitate the Integration of Social Action and Advocacy Within Counselor Identity Among Graduate Counseling

by Dr. Cirecie West-Olantunji

This project is designed to modify an existing course, Social, Cultural Diversity course
(COUN 5125) to reflect inverted teaching concepts. Although increased multicultural
competence has been shown in terms of their knowledge and awareness, students still
struggle with multicultural skills. Efforts to augment cultural competence include: (1)
interactive exercises and (2) outreach projects, service learning, and externships to
connect students to real world concerns. However, few scholars have focused on the
instructional approach to influence multicultural competence.

Using a group-based flipped classroom model, I will prepare brief interactive lectures for
students to complete prior to coming to class. During class time, I will engage students
in team activities. Following the class period, students will participate in asynchronous
learning activities that integrate their awareness, knowledge, and skills.
