This presentation discusses how flipped learning uses a backward course design strategy to move direct instruction out of the classroom and into the individual space. By doing so flipped learning allows the group space of the classroom to be used for team based problem solving, interactive engagement with concepts, and differentiated learning. This presentation will cover basic theories of flipped learning and strategies, tactics, and best practices for its use.
