What I’m Learning from Flipping My Classroom

Designing a Course That Works for Instructors and Students

“Flipped Classrooms” are generating both buzz and backlash, but in fact the term is used as shorthand for a huge array of possible course management and teaching methods, any of which could be helpful (or not) in a given teaching situation.

In this session, Dr. Lenore Hoyt from the Department of Chemistry will share her own experiences over several semesters of flipping large introductory Chemistry courses, describe the pros and cons of various techniques, and offer advice for how to effectively negotiate some common challenges with the flipped classroom approach.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore the advantages and disadvantages of various strategies for increasing student engagement and responsibility
  • Strategize techniques to incorporate into their own traditional or “flipped” classrooms
