« In which I reminisce, without much nostalgia, about non-electronic proofreading | Main | Reading List: Judaism and 19th-Century British Fiction Seminar »

Most large lecture classes, both at my private college and at the state schools my friends attended, also had a mandatory-attendance discussion session, which had smaller class sizes and were entirely "discussion, peer tutoring or professor-(or TA)-led exploration." It sounds to me like universities have been "flipping" their classes for a very long time.

I think Khan's vision is informed by college movies from 1958.


I have to say that technical subjects (computer science, math, computer engineering) do use traditional lectures as a primary "teaching" methodology. It's unfortunate.

We do have tutorials, but they are inconsistent.
