My Flipping Hybrid uses college-provided Technology. The objective is to meld the flipped classroom with the hybrid presentation. It is a blended 50/50 model that focuses on using the college LMS of Blackboard, Kaltura's streaming server, the Ed-Tech server to deliver materials paired with some 3rd party apps to meet student needs and expectations. Current students expect technology to be used in their college courses and my class uses current college resources to do so. My class focuses on competency-based learning, allows student multiple attempts and removes the "sage on the stage" feeling in order to promote the "guide by the side". I feel the student's success and course involvement increases when vibrant resources are delivered and tied directly to the learning outcomes. My flipped hybrid is full of video instruction and feedback and my teaching style allows flexibility for our non-traditional working adult-learners.

We will be exploring the process that was used to organize the event, sharing the resources and conference materials that were produced, showcasing the technology tools that were used to produce these materials, discussing the collaboration among various departments and outside vendors, and looking at methods that were used to evaluate TechCon.
