Upcoming Webinar:

Please join the ATS Section on Medical Education, in a webinar entitled “Ensuring Your Flip is not a Flop: Overcoming Challenges to Utilize the Flipped Classroom to Enhance Understanding and Critical Thinking.”

To be held on Tuesday, March 27th from 3-4 PM EDT.

Why Flipped Classroom?

  • Focus on deep learning.
  • Utilize classroom time for problem solving and critical thinking.

Why now?

  • Clinical clerkships – need you to “apply” and not just “know” it all.
  • Engaging Generation Y in the learning process demands an innovative approach.

In this webinar, we will explore the concept of flipped classroom and review the advantages of using it as an instructional strategy for medical students. We will provide practical tips on how to incorporate flipped classroom in your teaching and how to  overcome execution challenges. Although the focus of the discussion is on flipped classroom at the UME level, attendees who teach UME, GME and CME will gain an understanding of the flipped classroom approach and walk away with practical tips applicable to different teaching venues and learners of all levels.

You will need to register for the webinar in order to participate. To register for this webinar, please click here!
