Are you interested in flipping your classroom but not sure where to begin? Are you curious about this trend and how it can be applied to your college classroom? This webinar will take a close look at what happens when the traditional method of lecturing and assigning homework is reversed; when students receive lectures through video outside of class and use class time to complete homework, solve problems, and collaborate with the instructor and other students.

In this webinar we will demonstrate that flipping college courses is an excellent way to address some of the major concerns in todays institutions of higher learning. A flipped course can enhance student engagement by maximizing time for problem solving and student-student/student-teacher interaction. In addition, providing opportunities for off-campus content delivery can address the attendance and scheduling issues experienced by many adult learners. Participants will gain practical suggestions, effective strategies, and a checklist of helpful items to use in developing a flipped format.

  • Learn how flipping a course can overcome course management issues
  • Discuss advantages of the blended format in a flipped classroom
