Dr. Russell Mumper, Vice Dean of the Eshelman School of Pharmacy at UNC Chapel Hill, had heard the buzz surrounding the flipped classroom. With the explosion of information that a pharmaceutical student must know to succeed in the field, Dr. Mumper knew that there was no way to teach his students everything.

By giving them critical thinking skills, students could learn how to filter information presented to them – whether in the classroom or later in their careers.
He decided that flipping his Pharmacy courses would create the active learning environment he wanted. But would it work? To find out, Dr. Mumper also performed a rigorous research study on learning outcomes. The results forever changed the way Dr. Mumper views teaching:
