Flipping the Classroom?

flippedAre you “flipping your classroom”? Do you want to flip your classroom? Would you like to share ideasĀ about flipping the classroom? My answers are yes, yes, and yes.

I have longĀ tried to utilize a lot of active learning approaches in my classes — less so in my principles of marketing class (typically with 90 students per section) and more often in my marketing strategy class. This coming semester I will be using a new experimental classroom specifically designed for “flipping.” The class will be arranged for students to sit around tables and without a formal front of the class podium.

I am interested in sharing experiences, ideas, activities, projects, etc. with others who are currently flipping their marketing class, using a lot of active learning in the class, or simply interested in this topic. Or maybe even with those of you simply curious about “Flipping” or interested in more active learning approaches. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail at joe <dot> cannon [at] colostate [dot] edu if you are interested in sharing ideas. Maybe we can get a little online discussion group around resources specifically aimed at marketing instructors.

  1. HI Joe, A weekly quiz or reading questions before class help me make sure students are reading before class. I find the class is more engaged if we do exercises in class or work toward the project outcomes. Social media students read the text each week and watched videos from Hootsuite, becoming Hootsuite certified.
