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 recommend checking the local forecast before you depart.
