Georgia Tech is transforming the way undergraduate students learn science. This site highlights the innovative instructional methods, curricular reforms, and interdisciplinary programs being utilized to grow the next generation of scientific thinkers.

Flipping the Classroom in Math

Klara Grodzinsky is an award winning instructor and has been at Georgia Tech since 1997. She regularly teaches large lecture class such as Calculus, Finite Math and Linear Algebra. This semester she is reducing the amount of time she spends lecturing in favor of a "flipped" format in which class time is spent on problem solving and discussion. We asked Klara a few questions about how it has been going and here are her responses:

How has flipping the classroom run for you this semester? What do you have students do outside of class? What have you been doing in class?

Encouraging Freshman Chemistry Students

In his book What the Best College Teachers Do, author Ken Bain states that the practices of best teachers "...stem from a concern with learning that is strongly felt and powerfully communicated." Award-winning teacher Dr. Carrie Shepler, Director of Freshman Chemistry at Georgia Tech, shares her strategies for encouraging student learning and academic responsibility in this video.
