2019 - 4th Annual Higher Education Flipped Learning Conference @ University of Northern Colorado

The Flipped Learning Conference @ UNC is the only conference dedicated to flipped learning research, workshops and professional development for higher education. 

We invite instructors, faculty, and graduate students in higher education and other post-secondary institutions from around the world to attend and present. This conference is a blend of novice and experienced flipped educators who will share best practices and research. Thus, previous experience in flipped classrooms is not required.

The first day of the conference is an optional, day-long flipped professional development experience that starts with access to online resources and culminates in a workshop. This opportunity is flipped - so be prepared to work on materials before arriving at the conference. The content of this professional development experience came about in 2018 when a cohort of 100 experienced educators from 49 countries collaborated to identify 187 elements of effective Flipped Learning.
