Maximize Classroom Time

Amanda Dills (OK State U) gave a lightning talk recently called "BE WISE, DIGITIZE, MAXIMIZE!" She says F-2-F classroom time is the most valuable commodity faculty have, and their goal should be to make the best use of it.  She offers a 3-part strategy for moving class time away from content delivery toward active learning.
1. BE WISE: what kinds of activities are most worthy of class time?
2. DIGITIZE: use technology to move some things outside of class. She offers 40 Ways to Digitize Instruction. Her list is much more than simply replacing lecture with videos (what flipping is for most folks).
3. MAXIMIZE: Ideal results = more effective class time with students
