Successful Teaching Practices

Successful Teaching Practices is CETL's signature group program. Each semester we feature six sessions that focus on one area of teaching.
Fall 2017: How UW-Eau Claire Faculty Flip Their Teaching

Flipping Your Class GraphicWhat does it mean to flip a course? It's reversing the lecture and homework sequence, but it's a lot more than flipping the "where" and "when"; it's adding the "why" and "how".

It's sometimes redirecting the spotlight from you to the students and giving them activities to think, write, and experiment together. To flip is to "Focus on your Learners by Involving them in the Process" (Honeycutt 2012).

Each 50-minute session will feature one of your colleagues who has used some form of flipped pedagogy. Come learn why they decided to change the way they teach, how they got started, the challenges they overcame, and how they are now using the flipped strategy.

All of the sessions are held on Thursdays from 11:00 - 11:50 a.m. in CETL, Old Library 1142.
