Are you ready to flip your classroom?  Thinking about using a less than traditional method of teaching in your class?  After learning about the history of the “flipped classroom,” you will look at how the roles and expectations of students and teachers change when using this model.  No longer are students using textbooks and sitting in rows with a chalkboard.  Today’s generation is using the Internet and technology to approach learning.  Teachers are facilitator’s and encourage learning through interacting with the students, not lecturing. The Flipped Classroom course will give you strategies and tips to effectively implement the model into your class.
