Flipped Learning in the College Classroom

Flipped Learning in the College Classroom

Author: Karen Hamilton

This workshop will allow participants the opportunity to find out more details about flipping lessons, as well as the opportunity to participate in a flipped class.

Flipping a classroom is becoming increasingly popular in many academic arenas from primary school to university.  In traditional modes of instruction, the teacher delivers a lecture, provides some brief in-class practice, and then assigns homework.

By flipping the class, also called Flipped Learning, the instructor provides students with lesson content (lecture) before class and uses class time to practice concepts (do homework). Students also are able to participate in learning activities with the instructor present to help them.
