Episode Summary

Flipping the classroom is nothing new. We wont win any awards with this conversation about what’s become a tried and true method for increasing engagement and improving learning outcomes for certain college curricula. But... hearing Soo’s purpose, methodology and advice to others is sure worth a listen! If you want to reprioritize your course to better prepare your students for life beyond school (where timed exams rarely exist and team-based projects are everywhere), then we think you’ll get lots out of this conversation!
