The next presentation in the ongoing Provost’s Series on Instructional Excellence is Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 3:30-5 p.m., Merrill-Cazier Library, Room 154. The series is sponsored by Utah State University’s office of the executive vice president and provost, and all faculty are invited.


The Flipped/Blended Classroom is the subject of the presentation and features faculty members from a variety of disciplines and program areas.


Session organizers are looking for participants who are interested in:

  • Reinvigorating your teaching
  • Actively engaging your students in class
  • Improving student learning outcomes


During the presentation, a panel of USU faculty will share their experiences in flipping the classroom (moving lecture outside of class and actively engaging students during class) and in designing and implementing blended courses (combination of online and face-to-face assignments and activities). Resources and expertise that are available to facilitate flipped/blended classroom design at USU will also be discussed.


The panel participants include:


Clayton Brown, assistant professor, Department of History, Uintah Basin Campus;


Ethan White, associate professor, Department of Biology, Logan Campus;


Mike Christiansen, assistant professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Uintah Basin Campus;


Heidi Wengreen, associate professor, Department of Nutrition, Dietetics, and Food Sciences, Logan Campus;


John Louviere, director, Center of Innovative Design and Instruction (formerly FACT Center)


In addition to the Logan campus venue, the session will be broadcast to a number of sites, including:


Blanding: Admin Conf. Room

Brigham: Room 162

Ephraim: Snow West-A

Moab: Room N

Price: RVS 128

Roosevelt: SC 177

Salt Lake: Room B

Tooele: Room 168

Vernal: Room B110


The discussion will also be recorded.
