An Associate Professor of Dentistry, Dr. Andre Farquharson can not only pull a tooth, but flip a class. In this video, he explains what "flipping the classroom" means, why he decided to flip one of his classes, and how he did it. In vivid detail, he describes what part of the instruction he moved online and what part of the instruction he changed inside his classroom. Then he compares his students' response to the class format before and after "flipping." Although his experiment proved successful, he closes with suggestions for improving the "flipped" class next time.
