STEP Webinar: A Busy Professor's Guide to Sanely Flipping Your Classroom

Presented by Dr. Cynthia Furse, at the University of Utah. 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.
