Flipped Learning in Large Chemistry Classes

Flipped Learning in Large Chemistry Classes
Invited Speaker: Dr. Carrie Shepler

Interested in flipping your class and transforming it into a dynamic, interactive, and engaging learning environment?  Wondering how to do this well?

Or maybe your "flip" is off to a good start -- how do you take it to the next level?
No matter what stage you are in with flipped classrooms, come learn something useful (an inspiring) during this Teaching with Technology Spotlight session. Dr. Carrie Shepler, the director of first-year chemistry in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will share her successful experience and best practices of flipping her large chemistry classes by using a “semi-flipped” classroom model:

  • She delivers some content in class in a fairly traditional lecture that incorporates clicker question polling for just-in-time teaching and engaging students.
  • She assigns videos for students to watch outside of class for other material in order to free up class time for higher-level activities that involve applications of concepts, critical thinking, and problem-solving.

Join us in this session to find out about how flipped classrooms can be planned, designed, and implemented to create a positive, enjoyable, and productive environment for both instructors and students. Come with questions and participate in a discussion on how you might implement these ideas in your own class.

Lunch will be provided and please register.
