In the flipped classroom, we spend the majority of class time working in groups at the boards. I typically only change groups a couple of times in the semester. My goal for Spring 2016 is to change groups at least twice each class session, meaning that students will work in at least 3 different groups each time the class meets. Since this hybrid class meets 13 times (excluding 2 days for Midterm and FInal), this means that the students will work with at least 26 different groups. This will force the students to work with nearly everyone (if not everyone) in the class at least once. I will report results at the end of Spring 2016, and will compare 4 things from F15: anecdotal class culture, course grade, Midterm grade, and Final grade.
