Flipping Your Course: A Teaching and Learning Institute is an intensive three-day workshop, offered by the Sheridan Center’s Laboratory for Educational Innovation, introducing the key components of flipped course design and preparing 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. The Institute will be held from 9am-3pm on Tuesday, July 21st through Thursday, July 23rd at the Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning (96 Waterman Street). Lunch will be provided each day. To apply, please complete the form at http://goo.gl/forms/bhxhIUHluS by May 15th. Due to space limitations, registration is restricted to Brown faculty (any rank), postdoctoral scholars, and designated graduate teaching assistants. A small stipend is available for faculty participants. No prior experience teaching flipped or online courses is expected. More information about the Institute is available at http://innovationlab.brown.edu/flipped-classrooms/. If you have any questions, please contact John_Melson@brown.edu.
