Welcome to Arkansas State University!

+ SHOW

A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

Have you heard people talking about new classroom strategies like the "flipped classroom" and would like to learn more? ITTC and the College of Humanities & Social Sciences co-hosted a seminar from Faculty Focus titled "The Flipped Classroom: Rethinking the Way You Teach". Below you will find links to the content of the webinar including pre-videos, the webinar, and handouts. You will also find some discussion that resulted after the webinar. Please join in and share your thoughts and ideas about the Flipped Classroom. We hope that this webpage can become a resource where faculty can share their ideas and experiences in using this technique whether you are trying it out for the first time or have been using it for years.

To get the most out of the seminar, you'll need to view the following two videos before the seminar begins.

Professors can use this technique to create a successful class. Dr. Alyson Gill, former Associate Professor of Art History and Director of Center for Digital Initiatives is a great example who have created a blog that gives some good ideas about flipping a course and along with some resources.
