Flipping Your Classroom (Enrollment limited to 30 participants)

Registration required by February 16th, 2015


This workshop is designed to be an immersive experience and one that will enable all participants to fully implement the ideas discussed. Prior to the workshop, participants will be expected to 1) identify a question that requires students have a deep level of understanding of the content to be able to answer the question (due by February 16), and 2) create a short five-minute e-lecture, with the assistance of the workshop directors, that will provide the knowledge required for students to answer the question. These two tasks must be completed prior to the workshop because the class will be divided into three-person teams as part of a role-playing exercise to assess and build on each other’s efforts. Contact Harry Goldberg, PhD, or Carolyn Machamer, PhD, for more information.

Shark Tank Presenters

Shark Tank was a big hit at the 2014 conference. This year, four to five finalists will be selected to present proposals to our panel of Education Scholarship Sharks, who will then distribute $10,000 among the project(s). The best proposal might get it all, or it might be divided among projects!

This is a great opportunity to receive feedback from recognized educational experts, understand the kinds of things expert review panels consider, and get funding for a project.

How Shark Tank Works:
Selected proposal presenters, will have five minutes to make a presentation, with or without PowerPoint slides, describing:

  • Why is this important?
  • What do you plan to do?
  • How will you demonstrate that it works?

After each presenter has answered pointed questions and worked with the sharks, a final proposal or proposals will emerge and be awarded the grant(s).  

4:50 - 5:00 p.m.
