Introduction to the Flipped Classroom - Webinar recording and ppt presentation

Presented by Dr. Cynthia Furse, at the University of Utah on January 8, 2013. 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. This approach has led to increased student course satisfaction ratings and better test scores.

This webinar took a flipped classrooms approach. We asked participants to do a short homework assignment and view a pre-recorded introductory video (15 min, two parts) of Dr. Furse's presentation BEFORE the webinar. Then, use the comment field to post one question or concern you have about flipping your webinar.
