“Flipping” the Classroom


The pedagogical strategy called “flipping the classroom” is receiving a lot of attention, from academic journals to mainstream media. While engaging students in meaningful learning activities in class is hardly a new concept, the availability and relative ease-of-use of tools to create digital content is fueling the current reconsideration of how to structure what students do both in and out of the classroom. This workshop will define the concept of “flipping,” provide examples from a variety of disciplines, and offer faculty an opportunity to think with peers about what a flipped classroom might look like in their particular context.
