"Flipping the Classroom and Other Techniques to Improve Teaching" is Inside Higher Ed's new downloadable compilation of articles.

On Thursday, Dec. 7, at 2 p.m. EST, Inside Higher Ed's editors will lead a free webinar to discuss the booklet's themes. Register for the event here.

This booklet was made possible in part by the advertising support of Top Hat.
