In a traditional flipped classroom, lectures, resources and activities are placed online while class time is dedicated to working together face-to-face with the course material. So, how can you create a flipped lesson for either online, blended or face-to-face learning? The flipped classroom enables the instructor to build an interconnected community by working with learners synchronously while also providing rich learning experiences asynchronously. Using education technology, such as Desire2Learn, videos and podcasts, a flipped lesson provides opportunities for students to engage with content and each other asynchronously before attending synchronous or classroom sessions.
By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:
- Develop a comprehensive understanding of the principles of flipped learning;
- Identify when to best use student-centred learning activities to promote student engagement; and
- Identify at least one strategy to implement within the courses they teach.
