Kelly B. Butzler, associate professor of chemistry at Pennsylvania College of Technology, was invited to present a session at the Middle Atlantic Discovery Chemistry Project’s 2013 meeting.

Butzler was co-presenter with Lolita A. Paff, assistant professor of business economics at Penn State Berks, for a session titled “Flip Your Class! Strategies and Student Reactions to a Flipped Classroom.”

A “flipped classroom” moves lectures online, outside of class, and moves assignments into the classroom, where teachers can provide guidance and answer questions.

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.

Butzler, who writes a regular blog titled “Kelly’s 24-Hour Classroom” for Penn College faculty, is pursuing a doctoral degree in education, specializing in e-learning.

Butzler has taught at Penn College for 14 years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Gettysburg College, as well as a bachelor’s degree in education and a master’s degree in organic chemistry from North Carolina State University.
