Type of project (Select one from below): Flipped Classroom
I am interested in working towards flipping my psychology courses and I would like to pilot test some of the flipped course elements for two of the classes that I teach. Because I teach very applied courses, I think that students will find great value in being able to learn in a hands-on way when I actually meet with them; listening to the lecture online or viewing already available technology prior to the class will be a very efficient way for them to get exposure to the material.
