Keynote - My Class
The flipped classroom movement has forced many teachers to reexamine their pedagogy.  Replacing classroom lectures with videos may free up classroom time but how can this extra time be used effectively?  Paul Andersen will share several tools he has used to flip from a passive, teacher-centered learning environment to an active, student-centered learning environment.  Paul has been using a blended mastery system in his classes for the last three years and he will share technology and methods that have worked effectively.

Table 1-A218-Visual Lesson Plans For Flipped Learning
One of the biggest obstacles for teachers starting to flip their teaching is visualizing how a lesson will take shape: what they need to do, what students will do, and how the parts will fit together to achieve learning outcomes. Visual lesson plans use colors, icons, and graphics to illustrate components and methods of a flipped lesson. Visual representations are more engaging to students than written outlines and more clearly communicate expectations and requirements, inside and outside the classroom. They can even help convey the purpose of flipping to students, administrators, and colleagues. Come to see examples of visual lesson plans for flipped learning from a variety of grade levels and subjects. Then walk through using basic tools like Google Draw and Google Charts to create them, and learn how to post them on your class website or platform to link to tools and tasks.

Table 2-Flipping Foreign Language Fluency
Foreign language teachers know that we teach vocabulary and grammar. That is NOT enough - but often we fail to find the time to truly teach fluency. Flipping grammar - we have that down! Flipping speaking - we can do that! Now we can also flip listening comprehension! Using Google Sites, use primary sources to teach your students to listen, watch, and identify what native speakers are talking about. In this course we will work to identify how to develop resources that increase our student comprehension, embed it into a website, use the format to pose questions, then have the students' responses sent straight to your Google Drive for easy grading! I teach French I - V and flip it all - so let's work together to go from flipping the verb "To Be" to Flipping Fluency!

Table 3-Quantum Mechanics Curriculum Innovation: Training Physics Teachers by Flipping the Classroom
One of the main difficulties to teach topics of quantum mechanics in secondary schools is the teacher training. Teachers do not comprehend quantum contents and do not know how to teach them. The proposal presented here seeks to contribute to the research on curriculum innovation by presenting a teaching and learning sequence on topics of Quantum Mechanics for the High School, using the ‘flipped classroom’ .The strategy employed to implement this proposed flipped classroom is Peer Instruction ,in which conceptual tests were applied to a group of High School students attending a Brazilian public school .This course was taught by a group of 12 pre-service teachers on the Physics Teacher Training Course .The prospective teachers attended meetings with the studying group on topics of Quantum Physics, with the aim of providing them with the necessary conceptual tools and preparing them to work with the proposed topics.

Second and foreign language learners, for whom the language of instruction itself is a challenge, stand to benefit the most from flipped learning. Three major reasons are: (1) increased comprehension; (2) increased interaction; and (3) increased critical thinking. Participants examine the flipped learning cycle firsthand, seeing how it results in deeper learning.

Table 5-Overcoming Misconceptions and Making Chemistry Meaningful in a Flipped High School Chemistry Class
Some chemical education researchers and chemistry textbook authors describe the abstract nature of chemistry as one of the primary causes of student difficulties. This abstractness makes it difficult to overcome chemical misconceptions. It also makes it particularly challenging for students in traditional classrooms who generally lack the in-class opportunities to make the content personally meaningful and thus more concrete. This presentation will describe flipped classroom strategies that are designed to address these dilemmas. In particular, methods of making connections between the out-of-class and in-class components of a flipped chemistry class will be emphasized. One method will be how online quizzing can be used for detecting chemical misconceptions, thus helping the teacher frame the ensuing classroom discussion. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of how the flipped chemistry model is supported by the developmental theories of both Vygotsky and Piaget.

Interested in flipping your classroom, but have concerns about students accessing the Internet at home? Try the in-class flip! More of a blended learning model, students watch videos during class time – yet more time is made available for individualized/small group instruction, student mastery, and student creation.
As a middle level ELA teacher I have seen a dramatic change in just 1 ½ years of using the in-class flipped model and student engagement as well as achievement has soared. Learn how this model can transform your classroom. This session would benefit interested and new flippers as well as seasoned flippers who are struggling with students not completing assignments at home.

An In-Depth Look at Elementary/Middle Grade Flipping
Ever wonder how you can make flipped classrooms work in an elementary school? I have been doing it successfully for 4 years. Using a math workshop style, I get an opportunity to work with students in small groups every day. Students also get an opportunity to practice what they’ve been learning in a variety of ways.

In this session I will have you take on the role of students & rotate through each station. You will have an opportunity to discuss mastery learning with me, discuss ways you could implement this within your building, and learn about a few tech tools I utilize during our workshop time.

My goal is that you leave with some solid ideas of how you might make a math workshop work for you!

Breaking with Tradition
How does a flipped model help adult learners reach their educational goals? For this session, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of flipping a class of non-traditional or adult learners in a community college mathematics class. Adult learners are goal-directed and have restricted time to dedicate to their education. How do we ensure their class meetings in a flipped or flipped mastery class are meaningful?

Most adult learners have at least one other significant role outside their role as a student. They are parents, employees, and care-takers with a wide variety of educational backgrounds. They miss class for varying reasons and may struggle to keep current. What are the benefits of a flipped model for adult learners? What are the obstacles, and how do we overcome them?

Improving Your Practice, No Matter Where You Start
Imagine sitting in the teacher lunchroom discussing innovative strategies for flipping your classroom. Do you see colleagues from all over the building, representing every discipline, sharing best practices every day? With a variety of mandates and added workload, these conversations rarely take place because we are so frequently cut off from our colleagues never realizing that they have tips that can improve our own classrooms.

This session is to be that conversation. This session is not centered on any one discipline or any grade level, but rather innovative strategies that can work anywhere, at any time, with any group of students. Participants will direct the conversation among 7 categories: Administration/Colleagues/Parents, Homework, Assessments, Mastery Learning, Technology, Learning Environment, and Instructional Alternatives. While some experience flipping is preferred, this session is for ANYONE who is just looking to improve, no matter what their level of expertise.

Taking the First Flipping Step Toward Student-Centered Learning
Educators are drawn to new ideas all the time, but the difference between inspiration and the ability to make it work in the classroom is practically an unbridgeable chasm. If you've been drawn to the flipped classroom because you think it offers something your current classroom doesn't, but you don't quite know how to make it work in your particular context, this session is for you. We won't spend too much time talking about how to make videos, but rather, we'll talk about fundamentally redesigning your classroom in order to make the flip work for you and your students. We'll show how we use inquiry-driven pedagogy to create a rich project-based learning classroom where students have real-world audiences for their work. We'll spend time sharing the structures that have made us successful in transitioning from a traditional classroom to one where the student is in the centre.

Winning WSQ Chats
WSQ (Watch-Summarize-Question) is a strategy to help students engage with flipped learning videos. Its purpose is to help support students come to class ready to dive into deep discussions and high-level learning activities. The big question lies: What are those discussions and activities?
This session will explore different types of launching activities that the teacher can design for students that will really give them the opportunity to demonstrate TWIRLS (Thinking-Writing-Interacting-Reading-Listening-Speaking) in class.
Topics will include Peer Instruction with Digital Assessment Tools, Student-Created Work and Blogging, Inquiry / Discovery Activities, Hands-On Group Activities, and Traditional Group Discussions.
This session is a discussion where attendees bring and share their own ideas in addition to those presented by the facilitator. This is appropriate for grades 4-college, and while examples provided by the facilitator will be focused on activities for the math classroom, all subject area teachers can benefit from the ideas and discussion shared.

Flipping Precalculus: Engaging First Year Students
When teaching Precalculus/College Algebra to (mostly) college freshman, we are looking for a way to increase success. With approximately 50% of all students failing this course nationwide, finding a method to support and improve success here will increase the number of STEM majors across the country. We flip our classroom by having the students do reading outside of class, followed by an online quiz about the reading material. We then start class with a mini-lecture to clarify common misconceptions. This is followed by group work to address those concepts and have students draw their own conclusions about more difficult problems.

Hey, Have You Done Your Homework?
One of the most often asked questions of teachers who are going to flip their classrooms or have flipped their classroom is, “How do you know if your students are watching the assigned videos?” There are many ways, both non-technological and technological to determine if students are completing their assignments. These range from Crystal Kirch’s, “Watch-Summarize-Question” and one that I am using that I call “Post-It on the Board.” The more technological choices EdPuzzle, Ted Ed, NearPod and Edmodo. These resources will be described and the participants will be assigned a video to watch and then sample some of the different resources before the attending the program and then will share out their experience.

Being The First To Flip: The Late Adopter Who Jumped In First
How a self-professed stick-in-the-mud became the first teacher in a very traditional district to jump off the deep end and begin the process of flipping a high school math chapter, which turned into a class, which became more classes, and is changing how I teach at the local college. I hope to share what I have learned through experience and student critique that might help others successfully move toward a flipped classroom, learning management systems, and a web-enhanced classroom to begin changing how students view school and responsibility for learning. Topics also include taking inventory of your access and assets, finding both a peer supporter and a peer skeptic, selling administration, co-workers, and parents to think differently about learning, and how to begin training your brain to teach differently. What I want from this session is your input, critique, and ideas to move past simple flipping to mastery.

Tools For Beginning Standards-Based Learning
Flipped Learning is the first step toward a learner-centered classroom, but we propose that you haven’t truly crossed that chasm until you incorporate Standards-Based Learning. In this session, you’ll have the opportunity to begin your Standards-Based leap by participating in practical how-to exercises that are essential to the process. Hassan and Amanda, who both teach in flipped, standards-based environments, will provide you with concrete starting points, a roadmap for development, and tools to tackle some common challenges of Standards-Based Learning. If you are one of the many flipped teachers who is considering Standards-Based Learning but don’t know where to begin, this is the session for you. Applicable to all content areas and grade levels.

When do educators get the opportunity to get their hands dirty and play with the tools and techniques that we learn about at conferences? This session will provide participants an opportunity to play and create a flipped lesson using the tools and techniques shared at #FlipCon15. Always wanted to make an EDPuzzle, Curriculet, or Kahoot? What about learn how to use an LMS or implement standards-based-grading? How about turn a lesson into an Explore-Flip-Apply or Peer Instruction activity? Too often lack of time prevents educators from trying to learn something new and evolve ideas into actionable items. Take this one hour session and jump in the flipping sandbox and make something that can be implemented immediately with your students. Bring your ideas and willingness to play!

Station Rotation, aka Looping by Grouping!
For elementary school teachers, learn how to creatively use rotating learning groups in class to totally free yourself up to work one-on-one with your students. By having a group, say the first half, of your students experience one of your instructional videos, you now have reduced your teacher/student ratio by 50%. Now, you can work one-on-one or in small groups with the second half of your students. Once that instructional video is over, then the kids who have not experienced it, go over to engage with that instructional video. Again, you are totally freed up to work with the first half of the class however you need to. This is the single, most powerful, overnight transformation in education I have ever experienced in my 31 years in the classroom.

Engaging Busy Educators With Flipped PD
I have recently been leading educators in professional development at my private university. Our campus is one campus in a university system composed of 32 campuses with approximately 8000 faculty and over 100,000 students at the high school, undergraduate and graduate level. Much of our faculty training is top-down and difficult to navigate. Over the past two years I have been planting my own style of courses to my colleagues. At first I offered local courses based on requests of my colleagues and have expanded my offer to purely online courses in an asynchronous format while keeping the social element high to foster engagement. I plan to share my experiences as well as show feedback from my colleagues on my PD style.

Starting to Flip Strategies
Chances are you’ve heard of the flipped classroom, but what do we need to do to make this concept work in our particular settings and disciplines? What do we do if we can’t simply begin videotaping our lectures tomorrow? What do we do if we don’t have traditional lectures, but we still want to flip? What do we do if we have a technology phobia or simply lack the technology experience needed to flip? This session discusses strategies to use to maintain the basic tenets of flipping while making adaptations for our personal teaching styles, our different disciplines, and our course objectives.

Create Interactive Videos with Touchcast
TouchCast is a media platform and an interactive video authoring app for the iPad and PC desktops that millions of educators and students have used since we launched in June 2013. TouchCast is a great content creation tool for teachers that elevate the flipped classroom concept and online learning to a new level. Different from prior examples, a TouchCast is not just a static video of a lecture. It offers a simple way for the teacher or the student to include a wealth of related content and interactivity within the video itself. A five minutes video turns into a one-hour session when the viewer interacts with the supplemental material such as webpages, images, pdfs, polls, quizzes, videos, live Twitter feeds and much more. Educators and students around the world can now easily create comprehensive and engaging interactive videos and have fun doing it, using it for communication, active learning, and engaging instruction. 

 

You can find lessons plans aligned with the Common Core Standards, teachers training presentations, and an educator guide with examples of many best practices here:

Flipping movies: why and how?
Material : Movies
Levels: Pre intermediate - Advanced

Apart from the fun time the students can have, movies represent a rich and lively material that can boost, at a faster pace, the students’ language and build some of their basic leadership skills

Unlike the academic curriculum, movies provide us with an exciting content that mixes :
a- Formal and informal language
b- Wise quotes
c- Informative shots or scenes
d- Grammar in use

Visual stimulation :
Many studies have conclusively proven that the students in this Age are more likely to be visual and auditory learners. Thus, movies can be very efficient to deliver the intended message in a more exciting way.

How to flip movies :
The students watch the movie in class, where we create a very movie-theater - like setting.

Out-class activities : (Part 1 of the flip)

1- The students watch some shots to answer listening comprehension questions (from basic questions to intensive).
2- Script quotes : the students work on the target language
3- Pronunciation practice.

In class activities : (Part 2 of the flip)

1- SHAC : ( acronym that refers to : share, help, ask and collaborate)
2- Feedback
3- Critical thinking activities
4- Creativity (role playing and problem solving)

The 'Grade' Divide
How many of us have had questions like this from our students?:
'Is this graded?'
'How will this affect my grade?'
'What did you get?'
'What can I do to bring my grade up?'
At the heart of flipped learning is the drive to create a meaningful learning experience for our students. However, the student drive for grades overrides the motivation for learning and can conflict with a flipped-teacher’s pedagogical approach. In this session, we will explore the paradigm between learning and grading, and open the conversation to what our classrooms would look like if grades were eliminated, as well as discuss strategies for bridging the divide between grades and learning.

Art History Flipping Videos
High school students, art history, and using several methologies (in groups, peer to peer, oral discussions, ... mastery learnin, peer instruction)
https://vimeo.com/channels/historiadelart
These videos made primarily with a base image, its length is roughly 3 to 5 minutes, and have both spoken information discussed by the teacher and written information, such as some important conceptual words. In some cases used a song about work, style or historical period. Each video has some work activities or teaching / learning related to the content itself (for making videos has used the program to create and edit "iMovie").

Each video is accompanied by a text document that contains all the information, whether oral or written, which appears in all the same length. Both the video and the text of the document are available to support students in the virtual classroom / platform that is commonly used as a support during the course of all the subjects that can be accessed from any electronic device with access internet.

Flipped English: Way Beyond the Video
With six combined years of flipped English experience spanning 6th-12th grade, we will share the pedagogy, strategies and activities that work in creating a project-based, inquiry-driven classroom. We will talk about video and its role in our classrooms, but what's more important is what's left after instruction is pushed to video. Using our face-to-face time with students in the best possible way has been our obsession, and we invite you to learn from our failures, missteps and successes. From new takes on Socratic Seminar, to ways to integrate grammar that aren't drill-n-kill, to rethinking how literature is taught, to making time for in-depth writing workshops with every student, we will take our classrooms apart and share the structures and assignments that have helped us be more effective teachers than we were before the flip.

Flippin' Crazy, but wait not everyone is learning...now what?
The explosion of Flipped Learning is taking hold across the country. While teachers who implement flipped learning recognize its benefits and challenges and are committed to this approach, there has been relatively little research about the impact on struggling learners who are expected to learn through this methodology. Thus, researchers at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning have development an online course to guide teachers through a planning, designing and implementation process with a focus on struggling learners. During this session, we will share our research findings, as well as provide opportunity for participants to engage in the online course: Flipped Instruction for ALL students.

Leveraging The Flipped Classroom to Foster Writing and Discourse in Mathematics
One of the most important skills our students need in the 21st century is the ability to communicate effectively. In addition, we know that learning should be social, where concepts are constructed in the students’ minds as often as possible. Creating these situations in a math classroom is often difficult but the flipped environment provides a perfect context for powerful discourse around mathematics to flourish. We will share ways in which we leverage flipping to foster quality conversations and writing opportunities in math class from an elementary, middle, and high school perspective. This session includes teachers from each grade level so there's something for everyone!

Using Models to Teach the Bohr Atom - What to do Now that They've Seen the Video Lecture
Teaching with models is a good hands on way to engage students in the classroom, especially those who learn differently. Before switching to a flipped classroom, it always felt like there was not enough time to work with the models in class - there was too much information to present. Using a flipped classroom allows for more time to do hands-on activities, but there may not be models available to show exactly what you want students to learn. I have designed 3-dimensional models of the Bohr atom for students to use in class when learning atomic structure, ground state and excited state electrons and Bohr main shells. These models are appropriate for high school or introductory college level chemistry students. Use of the models is an example of Universal Design for Learning.

Flipping with a 'Spot.'
Students benefit from the flipped method, but not all are self-motivated enough to flip. Sometimes students become overwhelmed with the choices and are unsure about where to begin or what is expected. “You didn’t each us” could easily become an excuse for incomplete work or poor assessment scores. This session will show how I use flipped tools and methods to keep a structure that meets the needs of my wide range of students: gifted, IEPs, 504s, athletes with busy schedules, all of them benefit from the flip. I’ll demonstrate activities for individual study: Quizlet flashcards, PowerPoint recordings, and Google forms. And show how independent time outside of class prepares them for activities in the classroom. Just as a gymnast has a "spot" for the difficult stunts, a teacher can flip and still maintain the structure that some students need.

Learning Through Doing: Models for Flipped PD
Professional development for educators, while improving, is still often ‘stuck’ in traditional 1-hour lecture mode. This is particularly true for adult literacy practitioners and post-secondary education faculty. This situation needs to be flipped! Explore and discuss three models for training educators in the flipped learning approach piloted with adult literacy practitioners in the southeast during 2014-15. Using an inquiry-based learning model, different groups of roughly 50 educators participated in a) an extended interactive webinar (3 hours), b) a ‘flipped’ face-to-face workshop (3 hours), or c) an enhanced face-to-face conference session (1 hour). Attendees will compare and analyze results, brainstorm improvements, and discuss application of these models to other professional development content/topics.

How do students experience a flipped classroom, and how can teachers develop a flipped environment that fosters student learning? Using Carroll’s Model of School Learning as a framework for evaluating a Flipped Classroom, this session will explore the impact that a flipped model has on the overall degree of learning. Discussion of how the flipped classroom impacts different aspects of the Carrol model will provide participants with a deeper understanding of the underlying factors. Student perceptions of their experiences in a flipped classroom will be discussed, using their own words to highlight the impact on their overall learning experience. A new, student-centered framework for implementing and evaluating a flipped classroom will also be introduced as part of the session.
Although this session will focus on high school students, the information presented will be beneficial for all levels.

Flip Like a PIRATE
Are Flipped Learning and “Teach Like a PIRATE” mutually exclusive, or can they coexist and strengthen each other? We’ll start with that question, and see where our conversation takes us. Let’s explore whether or not these two “most tweeted about” topics can share the educational stage. Come and discuss your thoughts on the following questions and more: Is teaching like a pirate too teacher-centered, or can we find balance? Can we use the hooks that Dave Burgess writes about to further engage students when they are in class? How might the flipped learning outside of class improve, or detract from the in-class hooks? What elements of teaching like a pirate could be used outside of class? Can these two mindsets of teaching work together to create an even more meaningful learning experience for students? Let’s have the conversation, and see what conclusions we can make together.

Creating the content for our courses has traditionally been our job (even as flipped teachers), while consuming the content the job of our students. However, why can't we flip this too? Students can be part of the content creation process, and we as teachers can give up that control and become collaborators with our students as they create and share content with each other (and perhaps even use it as a springboard to expanding our classroom walls). This workshop will explore and discuss how students can develop a greater investment in their learning, and become collaborators in the creation of the content in your class. Come discuss and experiment with tools to help your students start to generate content in your course. This session will focus on middle/ high school, but all levels are welcome to join.

The question for educators intrigued by flipped learning (or put off by it) should be “How can I structure my class in way that students are questioning, thinking, collaborating, writing, and growing as learners?” I’ll be sharing how my colleague and I (Steve Kelly) collaborated to create an inquiry based math classroom with flipped lessons as the backbone of the class. I'll discuss how this resulted in more engaged students, deeper conversations, and a more solid understanding of the mathematics.

How to Flip the Flop: Building a Toolbox for Common Problems
“How to Flip the Flop” will focus on ways that educators can identify and overcome issues faced when flipping a class, so that flipped classes don’t flop. Participants are expected to share problems they’ve encountered, and use the room as a Critical Friends Group and Colleague Circle to analyze the problem, pin-point causes and suggest possible solutions. Similar to “If This… Then That…” participants will collaborate to create a toolbox of techniques to use when things aren’t going as planned. For example, IF students are not watching videos, THEN try putting videos in EDpuzzle or EduCanon or create a station for students to watch videos in the classroom.

Who Wouldn't Want To Clone Themselves?: A Case For No Homework in the Flipped Classroom
The first question we get asked is always “How can you flip without homework?” This session answers that question: we use video to make instruction asynchronous, and available 24/7. We then use class time to do the things we used to only wish we could do. Instead of stopping a lecture to answer a phone or write a referral, we have found a way to clone ourselves. This has opened up a tremendous amount of time that can be spent in the business of teaching and learning. We found that the things we wanted to do more of - reading complex texts, writing conferences with every student, individualised instruction, projects that demonstrated mastery - could all fit into class once we moved instruction onto video and freed ourselves up to help students instead of standing up at the front lecturing.

This session will start with some basics of how our flipped classrooms operate without homework; then we will have a discussion about why we’ve adopted a no homework policy and how to apply that to other subjects and academic situations. We will share some best-practice research that helped move us into the “low to no homework” camp, and look at the ways in which teachers can transition to this kind of classroom.

Wonder Walls
Wonder Walls connect learners, teachers and off-site experts to persistent, playful, moderated, spatial communication environments designed for collaborative learning. Wonder Walls are specialized environments which facilitate affect (a sense of mystery, fun, excitement, and importance) and cognition (reflection and formulating questions). Instructors set up Wonder Walls that focus around a general topic, specific question or task. Students upload and position text or graphical “post-its” (answers, thoughts, resources, questions) on the Wonder Wall at any time and from anywhere. In class discussions and explanations build on Wonder Wall posts. Students can also serve as Wonder Wall moderators, further directing content and peer-to-peer interaction.

We have used the Wonder Wall effectively in introductory through graduate classes. We have also used it with elementary, middle and high school students in science, engineering, history and literature classes. Students at all levels enjoy the options of posting text, drawings and photos to the colorful and playful Wonder Wall.

So You Wanna Be a Flippin' Teacher...?
Deciding to flip a classroom can seem very overwhelming at first and it’s hard to even know where to begin.

This presentation will help new flippers take the anxiety out of beginning a flipped classroom. Attendees will be provided with a checklist that outlines some steps to beginning a flipped classroom as well as some in-class activities that can be incorporated with the extra time! The checklist will act as a guide for the attendees to move to various activity stations around the room where they will learn about each component listed on the checklist. Not only will new flippers learn about taking the first steps towards transforming their classroom, but they get to experience what it’s like to be in an actual flipped classroom. They will participate as a student in the flipped classroom (engaged and actively learning) and also see the organized differentiation first-hand. They will be moving to each station at their own pace and according to their own needs. There will also be learning facilitators (experienced flippin’ teachers) available to answer and discuss the millions of questions that new flippers have!

Download the Verso App on the smart device you will be bringing to the session and join the “flipped class” with the code 8AWB6C

Some example activity stations will be (but not limited to); Accountability, Alternative/Informal Assessments, At Home vs Classtime, Initial Parent Contact, Genius Hour, Videos and Video Guides, etc!

Formative Assessments on the Fly
The students watched the video. They have their notes. They submitted the Google Form reflection. But did they learn? Are they ready to jump in? What about after the activity-how do you know where each student is at? We must consider all of these questions when building a successful flipped class. Socrative and InfuseLearning are two free digital formative assessment tools with unique features that give students and teachers a clear and quick picture of student understanding. Both are great for Warm-ups, Review Days, Exit Tickets, or anytime you sense the need to check in with your students. They work from K-College in all subjects, and can be used in 1-to-1 schools or on a student’s cell phone. In this session, we will explore the features of both tools by acting “as the student” and then digging in “as the teacher” to see just how easy these tools would be to implement tomorrow.

Flipping Case-Based Learning to Motivate and Engage All Learners
Case-based lessons for students involve connecting the learner in real-world scenarios that directly correlate to content and pedagogy emphasized in both state and national science standards. Participants will learn about the process of integrating flipped and case based instruction. Classroom teachers often feel the need for additional time in order to engage students in modeling, inquiry, literacy, and application of information. Flipped learning allows time for the implementation of case based instruction. You will take on the student role and at the same time learn how to coach and facilitate a flipped case. By giving students control of their own learning and pace, they remain highly engaged and learn to collaborate in teams.

It Takes a Village to Flip a Classroom
If the flipped learning movement can take root in a small, high-poverty charter school, it can take root anywhere. This session will highlight the importance of administrator-teacher collaboration in bringing the flipped classroom to any school, by focusing on Lift for Life Academy (LFLA), an urban charter school of 600 6th-12th graders in St. Louis, Missouri. Very few students at LFLA have consistent Internet access at home and the in-school technology is limited, at best. Although LFLA does not appear to be a school where the flipped learning movement can thrive, teachers at LFLA have been overcoming obstacles and flipping for years. The flipped learning movement is strong at LFLA because the teachers and administrators work together to make it happen. Through group discussion and brainstorming, participants will outline a plan for teacher-administrator collaboration to introduce or expand flipped learning in their schools.

So You Flipped Your Classroom, Now What? – Peer Instruction
Peer Instruction Flipped Learning is a hybrid of the best elements of Flipped Learning and Peer Instruction. Peer Instruction was developed by Eric Mazur, a Harvard University physics professor, in the early 1990’s. The model uses peer discussion centered on conceptual questions that you feel your students struggle with. A question is posted and the students work on it independently. The students then compare and share in a peer instruction model to improve each other's conceptual understanding. Some thought (dos and don’ts) must go into the creation of peer instruction questions. Benefits of the Peer Instruction Flipped Learning model will be shared.

Flipped Classroom Truth or Dare. The teenage right of passage game is turned on its ear to encourage reflection on our practices as flipped educators. Participants will be placed in a random name selector and asked to share a Truth or face a Dare! Truths will revolve around a random question generator that asks about weaknesses or deficiencies in our practices. Dares will be designed to share successes. These successes will then be turn keyed into activities for flipped educators. Hopefully, we will then share our attempts at the dares during the next school year.

Catching the 2nd Wave: Agile Faculty Development Model for Higher Education Reluctant Adopters
This session focuses on a dual-track agile professional development model used in higher education (but also applicable to K-12). In 2014-5, a total of 28 faculty members participated in two cohorts of a special professional development project. In cohort 1, faculty participated in summer workshops and transformed ("flipped") one lesson or module in their current traditional course. In cohort 2, faculty participants completed summer training and transformed ("flipped") an entire course. This model is unique in its focus by catching not only the early adopters but also empowering the more reluctant or resistant instructors. The presenters will detail specific support, training topics, methodologies, experiences, and evaluation information. This session will be collaborative and interactive where presenters and attendees discuss ideas, challenges, and best practices --and consider preliminary data from our project as it applies to their institutions. The sessions will be flipped; a video explaining the key points will be created and distributed prior to the session.
