The Flipped Learning Academy and the MAST Institute will be hosting the Third Annual Higher Education Flipped Learning Conference on June 14-15, 2018 on the campus of the University of Northern Colorado, in Greeley, Colorado. The conference starts at 8am Mountain Time on Thursday, June 14th, and concludes with a banquet dinner on Friday, June 15th. We are currently working on potential workshops for Wednesday the 13th, stay posted.
Greeley is located about an hour's drive north of Denver International Airport. 

This conference will allow higher education flipped classroom practitioners to exchange information, highlight faculty engaged in assessment of flipped classrooms, and discuss the future of flipped learning in higher education including the professional development with those interested in flipped learning. 

The conference is for instructors, faculty, and graduate students from universities, colleges, community colleges and any other post-secondary institution. We also invite those interested in the professional development of instructors in flipped learning. Previous experience with flipped classrooms is not required. The conference will be a blend of novice and experienced flipped educators to share best-practices and research.
