The flip’d blog


Welcome to the Future Leaders in Pedagogy Development (FLIP’D) Blog! Created by Matthew Mahavongtrakul in 2019, each post synthesizes current relevant research, as well as anecdotal experience from the authors. In our Developing Teaching Excellence (University Studies 390X) course, participants explore primary research and best pedagogical practices. Part of the course includes a capstone project, where each participant generates teaching resources. After choosing a teaching-related topic, they write a short blog post. We also have DTEI Travel Grant awardees attending conferences who write articles about their experiences and what they learned. To explore the articles by topic, click on the topic links below or scroll further for a snapshot into articles for each topic.

If you were enrolled in 390X and would like to contribute more articles, please e-mail Alex Bower at for instructions.
