On February 11, 2014, Chris Henige, Beth King, and Katrina Liu shared their experiences with flipped classes. Typically, “flipping” is considered to be the practice of using video segments to disseminate content-rich lessons outside of the classroom, thereby allowing classroom time to be used for interaction and hands-on activities. However, the flipped classroom model can take many forms and may also involve a wide variety of technologies and methodologies. The panel shared the advantages of a flipped class over traditional lectures, the roadblocks they encountered, and advice for others who are considering flipping their own courses.
