Published on

The term “flipped classroom” has become both familiar and increasingly more nebulous as its legitimacy is appropriated by companies like Coursera, Udacity, and EdX to construct a market for pre-recorded video lectures. Critics argue that the flipped classroom shifts attention away from engagement with primary evidence, constructing learning entirely around pre-recorded lectures and replacing reading with viewing. Advocates, including seminar leader Jen Ebbeler, point to the variable ways that a “flipped classroom” can be designed and argue that a flipped class can allow for more attention to reading, analysis, and higher-order problem solving. This seminar offered by NITLE looked at how we can incorporate the elements of the flipped classroom to enhance student learning as well as the quality of our instruction. It also examined some of the potential pitfalls and offered suggestions for avoiding them.
