Flip Tips for Success

The “flipped” classroom approach is a process of repurposing “class time” by reversing or “flipping” lectures with the application of learning.

But how do you ensure your flipped classroom is a success?

Flip Tip #2

Identify which areas of the curriculum the flipped approach makes the most sense to use with.

FOR EXAMPLE: content areas that are particularly important, difficult, or perceived as boring.

Flip Tip #2

Engage students in application activities during scheduled class time (synchronous or face-to-face) and provide them with feedback.

FOR EXAMPLE: the flipped method typically reserves class time for active learning which includes:

  • discussions
  • presentations
  • problem-solving
  • role-playing
  • simulations
  • bell-ringers
  • lab procedures etc.
