The Center for Teaching Excellence
21st Century Skills and USC Upstate – Stepping Up

“Inverted Teaching: A Model for Any Discipline”
Featuring keynote speaker Dr. Scott McDaniel, Associate Professor of Mathematics, Middle Tennessee State University
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
9 a.m. – Noon
CLC Ballroom

The inverted classroom, or the “flipped classroom“ moves the traditional in-class activities (e.g. the lecture) out of the classroom, and the activities typically done outside of the classroom (e.g. homework) inside the classroom (Lage, Platt, & Treglia, 2000).

From 9 – 11 a.m.: The workshop facilitator, Dr. Scott McDaniel, associate professor of mathematics at Middle Tennessee State University, will demonstrate how technology helps to invert or flip the classroom. His presentation will include strategies to get students to watch video lectures and the technology used to create the videos. The inverted classroom model allows instructors to engage students in actively analyzing, synthesizing, and critically thinking about the material presented outside the classroom thereby improving student learning inside the classroom.

From 11 a.m. – Noon: USC Upstate faculty will demonstrate how they have enhanced their fall courses with technology. Faculty presenters include: Angela Starrett (MCS), College Algebra; Tasha Thomas (LLC), English Composition; Andrea Davis (FASC), Public Speaking; and Cassandra Jones (LLC), Intro to African American Studies.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments to be served. Please R.S.V.P. by Friday, Sept. 14 to Lynda Davis at (864) 503-5927 or
