When is it?

Where is it?


What is it?

Flipped classrooms are a model of teaching where lecture and homework are reversed. Students take control of their learning by watching videos and studying course material outside of class. They come to class prepared to attack difficult problems, work in groups, research, collaborate, craft, and create.

Why do it?

1. Cultivate Deeper Learning
* Students gain control over learning.
* Videos offer students the opportunity to rewind and review difficult content.

2. Implement Active Learning Strategies
* Place classroom empahsis on higher-order thinking skills.
* Utilize class time for think/pair/share, role playing, jigsaw, peer review, discussion, game based learning, collaborative learning, case-based learning, peer instruction.

What will we do?

  1. Create a VERY simple website.
  2. Set up Edmodo, an online learning environment.
  3. Learn to create video lessons.
  4. Explore possibilities for extra class time.
