Instructor Joins Panel Discussion for Chemistry Educators
Matthew R. Eisley, part-time instructor of chemistry, presented “Early Stages of the Implementation of a Flipped Classroom.” The presentation was part of a panel discussion titled “The Flipped Classroom: Applications and Examples – College and High School.”
Other members of the panel were Jessica Fautch, of York College of Pennsylvania; Kim Wiest, of Governor Mifflin Senior High School; and Esther Gibbs, of Goucher College.
A “flipped classroom” moves lectures online, outside of class, and moves assignments into the classroom, where teachers can provide guidance and answer questions.
The 2013 MADCP Meeting was held May 17-18 at Penn State Berks. The project is an informal association of high school through university-level faculty in the mid-Atlantic region who are interested in a discovery-based or inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning in the chemistry classroom and laboratory.
Eisley holds bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and secondary education, both from Lock Haven University, and a master’s degree in instructional technology from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.
In addition to teaching at Penn College, he is a faculty member at South Williamsport Area Junior/Senior High School. In 2009, he was recognized as a Keystone Technology Integrator, and in 2011, he became a STAR Discovery Educator.
