Over the last several years, the phrase “flipping a course” has become a buzzword in educational settings. In essence, “flipping a course” interchanges the active and passive parts of learning, moving the passive parts (such as lectures) outside of class and moving the active parts (such as assignments) into class. Flipping a course can be beneficial for both students and instructors, but it comes with challenges as well. This panel discussion will focus on sharing experiences on the process of creating and delivering a flipped course. This seminar is intended to be interactive. While the moderator leads the panel through a prepared list of topics (e.g., why the panelists decided to flip, insights into the process of creating a flipped class, tips for making a flipped classroom a success, challenges they have faced or still face in creating or delivering a flipped class), the audience will be encouraged to participate in the discussion by asking questions and sharing ideas. The hope is that everyone will leave with ideas they can use immediately in their own teaching and that some will be inspired to flip their own course.
All SPH faculty and teaching staff welcome!
