Flipping your classroom may help students better understand complex concepts and general lecture topics.  Students learn factual information prior to class and come prepared to do more difficult and interactive work in the classroom. Find out more by attending this year's Veterinary Medicine Mini-Symposium:  Getting Started with the Flipped Classroom.

Tufts Faculty, Misha  Eliasziw and Samuel Thomas, will share with you how they have flipped their classrooms in order to get their students to better comprehend complex concepts in Biostatistics and Organic Chemistry respectively.  Professor Eliasziw is going to flip her presentation so that participants can experience the flipped approach first hand.

Following the faculty presentations, participants will have the opportunity to begin developing a flipped approach for their own class with assistance from TTS' Educational and Scholarly Technology Services (ESTS) staff.  Participants may also attend a hands-on workshop on Profcast and Box, software used to easily record and distribute slide-based lectures.
