Flipping the Class for the Skeptic
David Brown, Professor and Chair of Political Science
This segment of the FTEP program addresses common hesitations, misperceptions, and challenges involved with flipping a classroom. The instructor, David Brown, will lead participants through the evolution of a happy lecturer to a strong proponent of active learning. Why flipping the class is not for everyone, how to get your feet wet, and how it can change your perception of research, teaching, and students will also be covered. Different tools and methods which have been successful and not so successful in Brown’s experience will be candidly discussed. New technological tools which facilitate the flipped classroom will be presented along with their advantages and disadvantages. This event is co-sponsored with the Graduate Teacher Program (GTP). Graduate student instructors are welcome to attend this session.
