Flipped Classrooms: What Are They, and Why Should You Use Them?


Speakers: Martha Dunkelberger, Assistant Clinical Professor, Undergraduate Program Coordinator, Communication Sciences and Disorders, University of Houston

Discussion: Flipped classrooms turn the traditional teaching model on its head by introducing students to new concepts outside of class (rather than through lectures) and using class time to deepen that knowledge through exercises and other activities. This kind of format can fuel collaborative learning and strengthen understanding of complex topics. Join us to learn how this design works in practice and join a discussion on how it can be applied to the STEM classroom.


How do you attend a session? On the day of a session, we'll update the calendar below with a link to the session's Blackboard room. Simply find the session you wish to attend in the event calendar and click "Join this session"; it's a good idea to arrive 5-10 minutes before the event begins to ensure that your connection is fully functional. Please note that our events are discussion-based, so participants are strongly encouraged - but not required - to have microphones.

If you're new to Blackboard, make sure you review our Blackboard instruction page to familiarize yourself with the software ahead of time. If you plan on attending a CIRTL Reads session, don't forget to read the pre-selected article at the series' Moodle page ahead of time.
