7 Things You Should Read About Flipped Classrooms

Abstract

These resources explore the flipped classroom as a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements are reversed. The flipped-classroom approach draws on such concepts as active learning, student engagement, hybrid course design, and course podcasting. The value of a flipped class is in the repurposing of class time into a workshop where students can inquire about lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact in hands-on activities.

The 7 Things You Should Read About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) is a curated set of resources on topics important to the teaching and learning community. Each set of resources is selected to provide a high-level context for a topic, the current state and direction of the topic, and its bearing on higher education.

In addition to the 7 Things briefs, you may find other ELI resources useful in addressing teaching, learning, and technology issues at your institution. To learn more, please visit the ELI Resources page.
