NOTE: Fall 2020 instruction will be mostly online. Any UTSA student who chooses to take all their coursework online will have the ability to do so, as all in-person instruction will have the same content available and accessible online. For an overview of Fall 2020 class modalities head here.
Due to the nature of this disruption, WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ASYNCHRONOUS TEACHING, even if your modality includes synchronous options. Why? To be considerate of your students’ needs. Those with synchronous options in your modality, will find their synchronous sessions to be more productive if they use the flipped classroom model.
The key feature of the flipped class is the different use of in-class and out-of-class time.
- Out of class: watch videos, read articles, view recorded lectures, and generally get prepped on the information necessary for the in-class activities.
- In-Class: engage students in activities, hands-on project, problem-based learning, and demonstrations to use the content they learned out of class.
