January Topic: What the flip is a flipped classroom?

Tuesday, January 22 * 2:00 – 3:30 pm Center Hall, Rm 307

If you’ve been anywhere near a television, newspaper or web browser that reports on education, you’ve probably heard of the “flipped” classroom. And you probably have a few questions:

  • Does it work?
  • Do I have to know how to make YouTube videos?
  • Does anyone around here do it?

The answers to these questions are yes, no and yes. Bring all your other questions and answers to this casual, collegial conversation. With snacks!

Please RSVP so we’ll know how many to expect.

* Yes, we know, January 22 is the fourth Tuesday of January. But who counts January 1, anyway?
