Sharing our Flipped Classroom Practice – Brown Bag Lunches

This week the flipped classroom community of practice is excited to share the work of four faculty members. We invite you to join us as they explain and demonstrate their work and workflow as well an answer questions during two brown bag lunches.

Tuesday April 5, 12 – 1:30, Crest Room McCullough

In this session Pam Berenbaum, Professor of Practice in Global Health, and Vickie Backus, Senior Associate in Science will share the different methods that they are using to flip their classes, what they’ve learned through their process, and suggestions for others. Pam is working on using video to present lecture material in a way that frees up class time for discussion or active learning assignments. Vickie is exploring how animation can be used to help her provide digital explanations of some of the “muddiest points” that her students face.

Friday April 8, 12:30 – 2, CTLR Lounge

In this session, Jeff Byers, Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will share his use of the Microsoft Surface to create flipped classroom materials, and Ellie Gebarowski-Shafer, Assistant Professor of Religion will share her methodology for using video to help students become more comfortable with public speaking.

The RSVP forms here allow you to submit questions for the presenters ahead of time. We hope to see you at one or both of the sessions this week!
