Flipping your Classroom Without Flipping Out - ONLINE

Thursday, February 4, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM

Flipping or Inverting your Classroom involves moving some or all of your normal in-class lectures to outside the class. This frees up your in-class time to have students' interacting with the professor and the material in an active way. Class time can include problem-based learning, cases studies, team work, discussions, debates, work difficult problems, anything that allow the students to apply and work with the material in an authentic way to increase learning and understanding.

In this discussion based session we will talk about tips that will help you be successful when flipping. We will look at two faculty who have had different experiences when flipping and how you can avoid some pitfalls. We will also discuss and (if time permits) demonstrate some tools that you can use in the flipped classroom.
