Flipped Classroom Workshop Series 7
Flipped classroom—what is it and does it work?
Blended learning is a relatively recent model that, by combining face-to-face activities with online experiences, effectively incorporates technology into education. For example, in the flipped classroom approach, technology is used to facilitate the transmission of content and so allow for the repurposing of face-to-face classroom time for activities that are likely to lead to higher-order learning outcomes.
In this webinar, we discussed an evidence-based approach to the design and development of flipped classrooms that aims both to engage learners and create “effective, efficient and flexible learning” (Stein and Graham, 2014). We reflected on the fundamental principles that underpin the flipped classroom approach, and discussed and reflected on using such approaches in our own disciplinary contexts. The evidence available that characterises the effectiveness of this approach was also further highlighted.
