“Flipping the classroom” means that students:

  • gain first exposure to new material outside of class, usually via reading or lecture videos, and then,
  • use class time to do the harder work of assimilating that knowledge, perhaps through problem-solving, discussion, or debates.

Key elements - flipped classroom

  • Provide an opportunity for students to gain first exposure prior to class.
  • Provide in-class activities that focus on higher level cognitive activities.
  • Provide a mechanism to assess student understanding.
  • Provide an incentive for students to prepare for class.
