I heard that there is evidence that a "connected sage-on-the-stage" teaching style is at least as effective as guide-on-the-side / flipped classrooms. I have been unable to find significant references for "connected sage-on-the-stage", so I may have the term slightly wrong. Does anyone know a reference for this idea?

It is a variant of sage-on-the-stage that calls for heavy classroom interaction and participation but without radical change like flipping the classroom.

    $\begingroup$ @TommiBrander the term originates from King, Alison, From Sage on the Stage to Guide on the Side. College Teaching, Vol. 41, No. 1 (Winter, 1993), pp. 30-35. $\endgroup$ – Jordan Oct 18 '17 at 1:12

Some references, with no particular claim of their significance:

    $\begingroup$ The first of these three references is a useful answer. The second mentions "connected sage on the stage" only in passing and the third not at all (unless I missed it). $\endgroup$ – Jordan Oct 19 '17 at 15:37
  • $\begingroup$ The third is the source of the original phrase "sage-on-the-stage". The later "connected sage-on-the-stage" term is the one I am seeking references for. $\endgroup$ – Jordan Oct 19 '17 at 18:16
