The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to exercises, projects, or discussions. Because today’s educators are looking for ways to maximize time face-to-face with their students, the flipped classroom approach fits well with their goals. In this course, participants will learn the basics about what the flipped classroom is, how to begin flipping their class, and gain resources to use for their future endeavors in using the flipped classroom approach.
