Flipping the Classroom
This brief teaching guide provides an introduction to the flipped classroom concept, how it works, the evidence base, and key elements. The brief also includes several links to examples of implementation for further exploration.
This resource provides a quick and easy to understand explanation of a flipped classroom, the theory and research that supports the flipped approach, and the key elements of a successful flipped classroom. Adult education programs or teachers who are thinking of trying this approach will find this information very helpful and quick and easy to read and understand. Links to more information about implementation are very helpful, especially links to examples of how two university professors provided the first exposure to content prior to the class sessions and a link to a blog about how one professor gets his students to prepare for class.
The article presents a clear and specific explanation of flipped learning. As writing, its mostly evident connections are to more advanced level classes, its ideas could be adapted at more basic levels, as this seems to be written more about higher ed than about adult ed contexts.
