I was recently invited by the Physics Alliance of Central New York to be part of a panel discussion about the flipped classroom. (I think my role was to present a counterpoint perspective.) Also on the panel were:
Tomas Arias, a physics professor at Cornell University who is leading an exploratory team aiming to eventually convert the Cornell introductory physics and biology courses to the flipped model.
Josh Buchman, a high school physics teacher who has implemented the flipped model in his physics classes at Fayetteville-Manlius High School.
Here are my slides:
