Season 3, Episode 2: A Modified Flipped Classroom

Dr. Sarah Hewitt

Dr. Sarah Hewitt is an associate professor in the Biology Department at Mount Royal University, where she specializes in neuroscience and physiology. Three years ago, she started to use a modified flipped classroom to teach first year physiology and produced a series of concept maps and video lectures for the course. This led to a wider research project on using flipped classrooms in teaching physiology, and together with Michelle Yeo and Joanne Bouma from Mount Royal University, they won the TransCanada SoTL Grant in 2016. Some of the findings from this work have been presented at the University of British Columbia Okanagan in Kelowna, at a SoTL symposium in Banff, and at EuroSoTL in Lund, Sweden.
