Booklets

"The Flipped Classroom" is a collection of Inside Higher Ed articles and essays about changing the instructional paradigm by having students review content on their own time and using in-class time for other, ideally better purposes.

This booklet is part of a series of such compilations that Inside Higher Ed is publishing on a range of topics.

On Thursday May 8, at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman will conduct a free webinar to talk about the issues raised in the booklet's articles. To register for the webinar, please click here.
