Last week I shared flip tips #2 and #3 for ensuring success using the flipped classroom approach…here are two more tips to help you with your flip:

Flip Tip #4

Connect independent learning to “in-class” learning in clear and meaningful ways. For more ideas, visit this resource.

FOR EXAMPLE: “In your reading/video for this week you learned about xxx…in class today we are going to run a simulation where you will apply your learning.”

Flip Tip #5

Adapt classroom-based instructional materials so students can access them at any point in time. For help with this, click here.

FOR EXAMPLE: Use your Learning Management System (LMS) to organize content consistently and intuitively and make it easily accessible. One excellent way to do this is to organize content into modules or weeks.
