Do your students need you to help them in small groups or individually?

Do you wish you could clone yourself when teaching?

The Flipped Classroom is one in which teacher presentations are videotaped, and students have a chance to watch on their own time. Then during class, the students practice what they have learned under the guidance of the teacher. This workshop will explore various online resources for flipping your class and will explore how to use digital tools to create your own flipped class. Read more & register here!
