How to unlock student creativity in the classroom and engage students in analysis, problem solving and theory building rather than just application? In this presentation, Professor Groves described some of the fairly low-tech things he has been doing in his large sociology classes to achieve these goals. He gave specific examples of some of his in-class activities to demonstrate what he calls a more “organic” rather than “linear” approach to the flipped classroom.
