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

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