“Flipping Your Course” Institute at the Sheridan Center

Tuesday July 21 – Thursday July 23
9 am – 3 pm each day (lunch provided)
Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning

This intensive three-day workshop introduces the key components of flipped course design and prepares instructors to flip their own courses. Through a combination of hands-on activities, presentation, and discussion, we will work through the essentials of flipping a course, from designing online and in-class materials to facilitating learning activities in the classroom.

To apply, please complete this form by May 15th. Due to space limitations, registration is limited to Brown faculty (any rank), postdoctoral scholars, and designated graduate teaching assistants. A small stipend is available for faculty participants.

More information about the Institute is available here. If you have any questions, please contact
