Flipping the Infrastructure ClassroomIn June 2014, the first Infrastructure Education workshop was held in Milwaukee, WI. At thisworkshop, participants were provided with model materials and were assisted in beginning todesign their courses. One day of the three-day workshop was devoted to “flipping” theclassroom, wherein the activities traditionally completed in class (e.g. listening to lectures) arecompleted out of class, and the activities traditionally completed out of class (e.g. completinghomework) are completed in class. Participants were all given the opportunity to createscreencasts suitable for the flipped classroom, and these screencasts were peer-reviewed.Flipping is ideally suited to courses for which homework is analytical in nature; this type ofhomework can readily be made into in-class activities. However, an introductory infrastructurecourse provides some challenges. Homework is typically open-ended or may be field-based, andis not readily adapted to in-class activities. Moreover, given the breadth of the infrastructurefield, few faculty members are adept at being able to guide a meaningful in-class discussion “onthe fly.” This paper will describe the strategy to be used in developing and delivering a flippedinfrastructure course.
