On Thursday, December 5, the Fall 2013 Distinguished Faculty Speaker Series continues with Rich Stanley from Mechanical Engineering presenting, "Flipping the Dynamics Classroom."
The desire to have students come to class prepared is not a new idea. What is new is the mechanism to change the way we teach by “flipping the classroom.” Rich came to CETL and the Provost' Office last year with a proposal to flip his Dynamics classroom. This means that the lecture would be delivered via videos and prepared electronic examples. The face-to-face class time would be spent interacting with students; in essence the homework is done in the classroom and the lecture happens outside of class – thus, the name “flipped”.
All faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend at 12:25 p.m. in room 1-817 AB, and lunch will be served.
