THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FLIPPED CLASSROOMS

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed.

The notion of a flipped classroom draws on such concepts as active learning, student engagement, hybrid course design, and course podcasting. The value of a flipped class is in the repurposing of class time into a workshop where students can inquire about lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in hands-on activities. During class sessions, instructors function as coaches or advisors, encouraging students in individual inquiry and collaborative effort.

  1. Emphasis on ‘outside of class learning’ is once again problematic. What’s the incentive for students to do this? How do we ensure there is equal oppurtunity?

  2. An interesting concept and one we are adopting to some extent through collaborative group work. However, observers are looking to see learning taking place in the classroom and expect learners to do coursework and assignments elsewhere, will this change? will this model be acceptable?
