First-year students have to navigate so many different things - academic and personal - when they start college. For some, being in a large lecture hall could be totally foreign, and for others, they may need help getting up to speed on basic undergraduate STEM topics. How can instructors adapt their courses to help first-year students succeed in the sciences?
In this session, we will introduce what is flipped classroom. And share the current status of flipped classroom implementation in higher education and Iowa State University. A faculty panel with members from different disciplines will share their lesson learned with participants. This interactive discussion will help examine how flipped classroom may guide our students' learning processes and enhance your instruction.
