Grenoble INP-Phelma faculty members Fanny Poinsotte and Nicolas Ruty have been using flipped classrooms to teach their electronics classes for three years now. They are both contributing to a project called CHA(I)Se to encourage more active learning and group work. Four classrooms at MINATEC and two on the Grenoble-Alpes University campus have been equipped for this kind of learning through the project, which is financed through the French government’s IDEX educational initiative.
The traditional classroom furniture was replaced with much more modular six-person tables and movable chairs. The classrooms also got new displays, touch screens, and moveable whiteboards. This type of classroom—in high demand from both faculty and students—is removing the physical barriers to more student-centered learning at Phelma.
