 Picture of flip flopsFLIP CAMP MEETS OER

Come learn about how to flip a class while integrating Open Educational Resources (OER) into active learning activities. The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed, allowing for more active learning during class time. In this hands-on workshop series, we'll explore the range of OER and how they can be used for flipped class materials and  activities. Faculty can earn up to $500 for meeting outlined expectations and  optional deliverables. See the full details on our flyer.

  • Dates of class sessions: July 23-27
