Best Practices for the Flipped Classroom
This resource for higher education faculty and administrators can be used as a roadmap for implementing a flipped classroom, as justification for exploring the implementation of a flipped classroom, as well as a collection of ideas surrounding specific practices within a flipped classroom. The resource includes practical advice for teachers and groundwork administrators can use to justify/support the introduction of technology into classrooms.
The resource includes testimonials from teachers who have flipped their classrooms, as well as research-based explanations for flipped classroom strategies.
This resource could be used as part of a professional development workshop, study circle, online course or train-the-trainer activity on creating flipped classrooms, but the content would need to be modified to do so. It contains good information, but is not presented in a way that Adult Educators would find useful.
This is a fantastic tool for educators seeking to implement a flipped classroom, or for those looking for additional information in order to make a decision about the pros and cons of flipping a classroom. It's also a valuable resource for educators trying to convince an administrator that the flipped classroom is an effective teaching tool. The volume of expert opinions, curated into easily cited and accessed categories, is very user friendly and well-suited for a busy educator.
There are a lot of interesting ideas and a great deal of practicial advice from several different viewpoints presented in this piece. The audience would be instructors who want to try or improve flipped learning. It has some relevance for adult education teachers as well as higher education facuty.
