Inside Higher Ed has a new webinar coming on December 7, 2017.

“Flipping the classroom” is an idea that has arrived in full force in higher education, and is part of broader movements as well. The basic idea is to move away from using class time for lecturing, and to instead provide that information in video form so students can review it ahead of time. This makes it possible to use class time engaged in truly active learning.

And of course there are many other ways to promote active learning in the classroom. These days even research universities not historically known to focus on teaching are pushing new efforts to promote active learning – and these efforts appear to be working.

This webcast will explore some of the many ways colleges are promoting flipped classrooms and other innovations in teaching.

​Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these topics Thursday, December 7 at 2:00 PM ET.
