Brian Argrow, President’s Teaching Scholar, Professor of Aerospace Engineering Sciences

Inverting or flipping the classroom is an instructional method that emphasizes learning and preparation outside the classroom, typically employing multimedia technologies that include online lectures, videos, screencasts, and interactive websites to expand learning opportunities across the range of student learning styles. This hands-on workshop will engage attendees in an active session to explore the proactive teaching and learning philosophy and to demonstrate the use of some of the primary tools to engage students in the classroom. 

I will also describe my current collaboration with CU IT expert Cory Pavicich to implement tools that include Desire to Learn (D2L), screencasts, Google Moderator, and Google+, to flip the 1-credit GEEN 1500 Introduction to Engineering course, with 400 first-year students—where the challenge is to make relevant and engaging, a course that meets only once per week for 50 min.

The FTEP Technology for Teaching Forums are designed and provided for our instructional faculty members. Participation in FTEP Workshops and Symposia are open to Professors, Associate Professors, Assistant Professors, Instructors, Senior Instructors and Scholars-in-Residence, as per your official HR Job Class. If you plan to participate in a symposium conducted by a presenter whose college is different from your own, please be prepared to adapt the recommended teaching tools to the needs of your own discipline.
