Teaching Excellence Series: Deliver Course Content Outside of Class
Tuesday, September 23 • 1–2:30 p.m.

In this series, Classroom Learning Experiences for Maximum Impact, we focus on how to invite students into the process of learning.

In a flipped classroom, students gather information outside of classroom through video, online readings, or other electronic sources. This allows class time to be used for applying that information through exercises and activities. This session will show you how to use online resources and ReggieNet to provide students with a variety of resources. No registration is necessary.

This course will also briefly discuss organizing content in other ReggieNet features, such as the Resources and Materials and Web Content tools. Prerequisite: Introduction to ReggieNet
