Chemistry Professor Published in Research Journal


Kelly B. Butzler, associate professor of chemistry at Pennsylvania College of Technology, had a paper published in an international journal’s special issue focused on “Flipping the Classroom.”

The current issue of Computers in the Schools: Interdisciplinary Journal of Practice, Theory, and Applied Research features Butzler’s article, “The Synergistic Effects of Self-Regulation Tools and the Flipped Classroom.”

Butzler is an educational advocate for “flipped classrooms” – a blended learning approach to standard classrooms. Flipped classrooms move lectures online, outside of class, and move assignments into the classroom where teachers can provide guidance and answer questions.
