A few years ago, I (Joe Cannon) flipped my marketing class. It went well and I began to research active learning and the flipped classroom to learn how to do it better. After doing all that research, I wanted to share my learning and my experience. So I wrote Flip Your Marketing Class. I am making the book available as a free eBook for anyone interested. To give you a better idea of what the book is about, I briefly describe the chapters below. To get your free PDF copy of the book, email Joe Cannon please put “Flip Your Marketing Class” in the subject line.

It also looks at the empirical evidence supporting active learning more generally and the flipped classroom model.
