Flip the Responsibility: Students Master Learning
Caroline Essex Torcaso & Jenny Penniman
Howard Community College
Howard Community College has flipped the responsibility of learning to its students by combining best practices from 20 years of experience in computer-based, teacher-led developmental mathematics. The presenters will explain how their program creates active learners who gain responsibility, master concepts, and learn study skills in the process.
