Led by Wendy Dragon, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, School of Professional Psychology. The purpose of this workshop is to help faculty maximize student engagement and participation in coursework by using flipped and blended classes. A flipped class requires students to be responsible for content acquisition outside of class and uses in-class time to work on projects and application. Blended classes have both on-line and in-class components. By using a flipped and blended format, an instructor can minimize student failure by providing guidance during in-class exercises rather than having them practice a technique or skill improperly in their homework. We will discuss advantages of this method. In addition, we will review potential pitfalls of flipping and blending a class and how to avoid them (or at least minimize their impact).
