On November 13, 2013, seminar leaders Maha Zewail Foote and Steven Neshyba presented Flipped for the Sciences, in which they shared why they became interested in “flipping” a classroom and introduced the “flipped” techniques they are using to engage students in the sciences. In this follow-up seminar, they offer some practical guidelines on what aspects of your course to flip, and how to flip them. They’ll share strategies for sequencing topics, identifying learning objectives, and motivating students in ways that maximize the benefit of the flipped format. They’ll talk about designing student-centered approaches, such as just-in-time development, that promote serendipitous learning. They’ll also talk about pedagogical experiments that didn’t work out as well as they had hoped. Whether you have already flipped a classroom, experimented with flipped techniques, or are uncertain about whether flipping is suitable for your courses, join the seminar leaders and other colleagues from the NITLE Network who are examining the value of this approach.
