A NOTE TO ON-CAMPUS STUDENTS
I use a flipped classroom approach in my on-campus classes which means no in-class lectures. Most students become very comfortable with this format, especially if they are highly motivated students. It has led to an improvement in overall success rates for each class as well. However, students who feel they can only learn from an in-class lecture should consider a different professor.
A NOTE TO ONLINE STUDENTS
All online students must take the midterm and final exams in a proctored setting. No exceptions for any reason.
