“Flipping” the classroom refers, in general, to a course design whereby learners engage with content prior to class time and deepen learning and understanding through cooperative, interactive engagement with problems, cases, etc. during class time. As a research-based pedagogical model, flipping does not mean, as many people misunderstand, placing video lectures online and doing homework in class.  Workshop participants will understand what flipping means as a course-design model, the evidence for why it is beneficial for learning, and will be introduced to various implementation approaches that utilize available technology resources.  The workshop is also flipped, with expectation of completing a pre-workshop assignment. Follow-up consultations will be available to assist participants with piloting or full-scale implementation of flipping in their courses.


Upon completion, workshop participants will:

  • Explain “flipped learning” in terms of course-design principles,
  • Explain why learning is enhanced in comparison to traditional lecture-and-study scenarios
  • Use backwards design to create a learning-activity sequence that combines in-class and out-of-class learning
  • Identify technology tools for implementing the online component of their learning-activity sequence
