A “flipped” or “inverted” classroom is a learning model in which students learn course content at home before attending a physical class where they discuss, practice, and otherwise engage with that content. In Fall 2014, a flipped approach was used to teach Math 1000 (Calculus 1) at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University. In preparation for class, students watched screencasts of new lecture material, completed short practice activities, and took an online quiz; in class, students participated in instructor-led discussion about the new material and completed additional practice activities with peer and instructor assistance. This presentation will discuss tools for facilitating a flipped classroom (including screencasts, online assessments, and free electronic texts) as well as student response to the flipped format.
