Baby Steps toward the Flipped Classroom

Vector drawing of two footprints upside down and bright greenThe flipped classroom model of teaching is a pedagogical method that inverts the traditional model of teaching in which we deliver the content to students in the classroom and have them practice their understanding of that knowledge outside of the classroom. With inverted teaching, content is delivered to the student outside of the classroom, often (but not always) through short video lectures. This then frees of class time to allow the students to practice and assess their learning in the classroom, with the instructor present to help them.

Flipping a class can be a daunting process, and research suggests that the better practice is to "start small": Flip one day or one module and see how it works. If it works well, you can start thinking about trying it again, maybe in a slightly bigger way, and if it doesn't work so well, your semester isn't ruined.

So how do you "start small"? Attend this workshop and learn about some of the baby steps you can take toward this innovated and highly effective model of teaching. By the time you leave our workshop, you will have at least one idea, one baby step, you can take.

Lunch will be provided.
