Incorporating elements of online teaching within a "flipped classroom" format

By Matthew Leisinger

Matthew Leisinger created this video as a summative project towards completing the Certificate of Proficiency in Teaching for eLearning offered through the Teaching Commons. Matthew began teaching at York in Fall 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, much of Matthew's teaching at York as taken place online. In the video, Matthew discusses the challenges of returning to—or, in their case, beginning—in-person teaching and explains how they are now trying to incorporate elements of online teaching within a "flipped classroom" format.
