In what's known as the 'flipped classroom' approach, students view online materials in their own time, and at their own speed, ahead of lectures. This frees up face-to-face sessions for more active discussion and problem-solving, as well as providing
opportunities to focus on areas of misunderstanding.

This is part of the Developing Digital Teaching Practices series, attendance at all is recommended. (Refreshments provided)
