Flipped Classrooms

ICS has two flipped classrooms in The Pyle Center to be used for professional development, distance education, seminars and more. Flipped classroom design is based upon the following common elements:

  • Students view pre-recorded online video lectures outside of the class or meeting time.
  • Face-to-face time is spent solving problems or creating content together.
  • The design of the space emphasizes student-centered learning versus presenter-centered lecture and encourages collaboration between students.
  • An inclusive learning environment encourages on-site and off-site participants to connect with each other using built-in technologies.

Rooms 312 & 315

  • Collaborative mobile learning
  • Multi-functional
  • Flat screen monitors at each table
  • Movable, reconfigurable tables for flexibility with 12 – 15 participants
  • Instructor monitors
