Community Working Group

Learn, discuss, and share ideas and resources about strategies for effectively flipping your classroom. Dr. Cynthia Furse, Associate Vice President for Research at the University of Utah and a leader in developing the "flipped classroom" approach, has posted a series of presentations on how to effectively flip your classroom.  (See links below).  Please view the presentations, discuss, and share your ideas and questions here within this working group. On Jan 8th, 2013, we will be holding a live webinar for an in-person discussion and learning session on flipping your classroom.  REGISTER HERE.  Please join us!


The "Flipped Classrooms" approach is a method for effectively and easily teaching large undergraduate course without traditional in‐class lectures by pre-recording lectures and requiring students to view the lectures before class. Class time is then spent helping students make the transition from lecture to homework and helping them gain better problem solving skills and strategies.
