Flipped Classroom Cohort

In collaboration with ATAB and the UCT, the Center for Teaching Excellence is facilitating a year-long faculty cohort for instructors interested in flipping their classes.

The flipped classroom method, so-called because it switches what is normally done inside the classroom (content transfer) and what is done outside the classroom (active practice), has gained interest as a way to increase student success, particularly in applied courses.

Participating faculty members are drawn from across the university, including the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences, the Lynch School of Education, the Carroll School of Management, and the Connell School of Nursing, and are meeting together to discuss particular approaches or issues around teaching a flipped course. CTE staff are also providing a series of workshops on creating online course materials, facilitating active learning in class, and designing Canvas courses to assist these faculty members.

If you are interested in learning more about the flipped classroom or discussing how you might flip your course, please email the Center for Teaching Excellence.
