Your learning will be guided by K-12 art educator case studies that offer relevant strategies for immediate applicability to your art room. You will walk away from this course confidently equipped to implement procedures and activities that model the flipped classroom approach.

"I introduced a flipped lesson in class today and feel this class prepared me to make that successful. What I learned will directly make me a better teacher, so I feel the time and money was well-spent. I also appreciate that the cost per credit hour is much cheaper than state schools in my area."
