If you’re thinking about flipping your class, you probably have a few questions.

It’s new teaching territory for a lot of us, so it’s understandable you’d want more information before you embark on a new approach that reverses the traditional way classes are designed.

For starters, you are probably wondering when, where, and how to begin. And if you’re not going to lecture, what should you do instead?

Should you flip everything? Or is that too much?

If you’re wondering about any or all of those challenges, you need What Are 5 FAQs about Faculty Roles in the Flipped Class?
