How Flipping your Classroom Can Improve Instruction


Published on

Flipping a classroom is a type of blended learning that allows instructors more time to interact with their students by placing traditional classroom activity, such as lectures, outside of class time. Watching lectures in class leaves class time for hands-on activities, small group work, and one-on-one interactions between professor and student. Flipping can be done through LMS forums, Khan Academy, lecture capture software, VoiceThread, etc. This presentation will discuss benefits of the flipped classroom model, provide ideas and best practices for successful classroom flipping, and give participants an opportunity to start planning how to flip their own classes.

  2. 2. What is flipping a class? ―Flipping‖ a class is a type of blended learning designed to give instructors more one-on-one time with their students. Flipped classes move activities normally done in class (lecture, textbook activities) and assign them as homework. Class time is then spent on active learning activities.
  3. 3. Why I tried flipping I teach Developmental English at a community college.  High attrition rate  High failure rate Looking to engage students Improve student learning Improve student learning rate Create ―more‖ class time to accomplish what we need to do
  4. 4. What I flip Lectures  Make own videos  Find videos online Class discussion Recorded classes (Some) tests Peer review of essays Questions about content
  5. 5. So what do we do in class? Group work  Small group discussion  Group essay writing  Revision of work Answer questions  What do you wonder?  What are you unsure of after trying…? Practice applying concepts
  6. 6. Benefits Students have more flexibility to learn at their own pace. Videos—students can watch at own pace, stop and rewind, use CC MUCH more engaged in class Closer bond with each other and me Formative assessment Deeper learning
  7. 7. Challenges Takes a lot of time, especially at the beginning (like moving a f2f class OL) Requires (or seems to) more time of students outside of class What if they don’t do their homework? Doesn’t it reinforce ―lecturing‖? Technology access limitations of students
  8. 8. Choosing what to flip Start small. Start where you feel comfortable.  If you already record lectures, make them available online.  Give an assessment of understanding before discussing topic in class. In addition to having students answer questions on their reading, have them ask questions. Have students write summaries or reactions to readings and assignments.
  9. 9. Steps to get started You don’t have to flip everything! Decide what you want to accomplish Take a look at your syllabus and assignments – decide what would work outside the classroom Choose one area to flip to get started Have your students help find materials (e.g. videos, websites) Find a mentor
