Flipped Learning Post COVID-19:
Evolution of the Classroom

Join us for the 6th annual International Higher Education Flipped Learning Conference!

 The impacts of the pandemic have made the past year a rollercoaster for individuals and
institutions. Yet, it has also been a period of forced innovation and rethinking of pedagogical
approaches that has resulted in revolutionary changes in the way classrooms function.
Everyone is invited to share their experiences with advances in flipped learning!

  • What challenges did we encounter?
  • What new strategies did we develop?
  • What new insights did we glean?
  • What creative applications did we implement?
  • What innovations did we pioneer?
  • What research findings emerged?
  • What best practices did we discover?
  • What worked, what didn’t, and why?
  • What will we carry into the future?

Keynote speaker preview: Professor Eric Mazur | Harvard University

Registration Options

June 3 – 4, 2021

Submit a proposal

  • Presentations can be practitioner or research based.
  • Proposals should be 300-500 words and include the topic and format of the presentation.

It is important to address how the presentation is related to flipped or active learning and should focus on post-secondary education.

Presentation Categories

Long Format 
15-minute video presentation followed by a 30-minute discussion with the presenter.
If there are a large number of long format submissions, presenters may be asked to create a short format presentation.

Short Format
3-minute video.
A great option for graduate students! This format is best for emphasizing individual practices, concepts, and findings. If you are not an education researcher, but have developed an interesting technique, the short format presentation is an excellent way to share it with the world. The short video replaces poster presentations.

Dr. Eric Mazur

Dr. Eric Mazur

The Balkanski Professor of Physics and Applied Physics and Area Chair of Applied Physics at Harvard University, Member of the Faculty of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and Past President of the Optical Society.

Mazur is a prominent physicist known for his contributions in nanophotonics, an internationally recognized educational innovator, and a sought after speaker. In education he is widely known for his work on Peer Instruction, an interactive teaching method aimed at engaging students in the classroom and beyond. In 2014 Mazur became the inaugural recipient of the Minerva Prize for Advancements in Higher Education. He has received many awards for his work in physics and in education and has founded several successful companies. Mazur has widely published in peer-reviewed journals and holds numerous patents. He has also written extensively on education and is the author of Peer Instruction: A User's Manual (Prentice Hall, 1997), a book that explains how to teach large lecture classes interactively, and of the Principles and Practice of Physics (Pearson, 2015), a book that presents a groundbreaking new approach to teaching introductory calculus-based physics.

Mazur is a leading speaker on optics and on education. His motivational lectures on interactive teaching, educational technology, and assessment have inspired people around the world to change their approach to teaching.
