Instructors all over the globe are turning their students' worlds around by flipping their classrooms. In a flipped class, teachers typically move information coverage out of the lecture hall so that they can better leverage in-class time to address student difficulties and misconceptions. In this three hour workshop, Dr. Julie Schell will introduce the basic flipped classroom technique, review its history, and present two practical flipped teaching methods teachers can use to design learning environments that facilitate student engagement with mathematical subject-matter both in and outside of class. Participants will experience live demonstrations of one flipped class technique called Peer Instruction that can be used in any discipline and with any class size.Â Participants will also learn strategies for helping students learn better, writing effective questions, and how to use clickers in math courses.
