Flipping the Classroom
On April 16th, 2012, Professors Angela Bauer-Dantoin (Biology), David Voelker (History) and Jeremy Wildenberg (Modern Languages) presented on the topic of 'Flipping the Classroom'. This is an innovative strategy that utilizes technology to 'cover' the material, allowing faculty to devote class time to discussion, active learning and building critical thinking skills.
