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.  However, students who feel they can only learn from an in-class lecture may struggle as I do not provide in-class lectures.  Students who feel they need to learn from an in-class lecture should consider a different professor.



All online students must take the midterm and final exams on campus in a proctored setting.

I do not allow students to take exams at home. No exceptions!

Students who do not live in Pinellas can pay for proctored testing at a college or university near where they live.
