In survey after survey faculty cite 'lack of student engagement' as the greatest challenge they face in their teaching. On the other hand, a student's typical response to this complaint is that it is hard to get engaged when they don't understand even the basics of the concepts at the time they come to lecture. The inverted (or 'flipped') classroom solves this problem of student engagement by aligning instructor and student expectations. The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures as an introduction to the content are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to higher levels of thinking, such as application and evaluation through exercises, projects, or discussions.

This workshop will introduce the inverted classroom model, its basic elements, and offer best practices to effectively integrate into any course.  After attending this workshop the participants should have all the tools they need to flip their own classrooms.
