Traditional college instruction often involves students listening to a lecture during class time and working on tasks, like writing or problem sets, as homework. The flipped classroom model, which has been around for decades, inverts this setup: students read or listen to lectures as homework and spend class time engaged in higher-order cognitive tasks. Recent concerns about in-class attendance and the advent of large language models such as ChatGPT make using class time to engage students in “doing” especially appealing. But how do you go about “flipping” your classroom effectively? This workshop will examine what it takes to do so. This workshop is at the intermediate level, which means that you may benefit from having some basic knowledge about good pedagogical practices already.


This workshop is part of the Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies series for GW instructors seeking strategies to increase student engagement and communicate with learners in new ways. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
