LOCATION: College of the Holy Cross, Hogan Campus Center, Worcester, Massachusetts
DESCRIPTION: “Flipping the classroom” is an innovative teaching method that encourages the consumption of instructional content outside the classroom, leaving valuable classroom (and face-to-face) time for reinforcement, review and other work.

Join us for a day filled with information about the tools, methods and practices of implementing many of the ideas made famous in Salman Khan’s TED presentation. Strategies will be considered from multiple points of view including instructor, tech support, faculty development and student. The day will wrap up with a discussion on how you can implement these tools and processes in your own institutions.
