Creating and Updating Flipped Classrooms

Thursday, May 30th, 20192:00 pm – 2:45 pm ET

Presented by: Adam Sullivan (Brown University)


Flipped classrooms have appeared in all levels of education. One of the major benefits is that the passive learning (lecture) is completed at home and the active learning (activities and problem solving) are done in class with the instructor. However, the issues with flipped classrooms are the cost to make high quality video content and the time. Due to the cost and time many classes are created and then not updated. This talk will discuss common ways for creating and updating flipped classrooms, considering a case study of PHP 2560: Statistical Programming in R at Brown University. We will discuss the first flipped version of this course, in terms of content and creation time. Then we will discuss how subsequent iterations have been adapted and updated to maintain relevance.
