Abstract Title: Flipped Physics Teaching
Abstract: Physics educators began flipping the classroom long before the approach was given a sleek new name.  We called it, for example, Workshop Physics, Physics by Inquiry, or Peer Instruction.  Yet in spite of the strong research behind these approaches and the breadth of materials available, most physics courses remain steadily on their feet.  Especially in regional comprehensive universities, class size and limited resources provide constraints that can be hard to envision away.  In this session, we would like to open conversation about opportunities that now-common technologies provide to change those constraints.  Whether you already flip, sort of flip, or would like to flip, please join us in this conversation about flipping physics even in strongly upright surroundings.
Abstract Type: Roundtable Discussion
