The Flipped Classroom

- Lectures and videos can be controlled by the student: they can watch, rewind, and fast-forward based on their needs.- Advantage for students with accessibility concerns like hearing impairment.-Lectures can be viewed more than once. Especially for English Language Learners. -Instructor can detect errors.-Class time devotes to application of concepts.-Social interaction occurs through collaborative projects, which helps make it easier for students to learn from one another and support each other.

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model that use a reverse method than the typical lecture and homework elements. The students would view short video lectures at home before the class session so that class time can be devoted to classroom activities like projects, exercises, or discussions. The videos are seen as a key ingredient and can be easily accessed. There is a belief that the flipped classroom draws on concepts like active learning, student engagement, hybrid course design, and course podcasting in order to repurpose class time into a workshop that allows students to inquire about lecture content, test their skills with applying knowledge, and interact with one another during hands-on activities. Instructors are functioning as coaches or advisors to encourage students to perform individual inquiry and collaborative learning during class time.


The Presentation about ...


-Easy model to get wrong.-In order to flip the classroom, it requires careful preparation.-Recorded lectures has out-of-class elements and in-class elements that if they are not integrated properly then students would have difficulty understanding and becoming motivated for class.-Could require new skills for the instructor and additional work.-Students miss the face-to-face lectures.-Students may not appreciate the value of the hands-on assignments.-Students may feel that skipping class is appropriate.-Student equipment and access may not be supported


When thinking of the term "the flipped classroom" it can be used to describe almost any class structure that has prerecorded lectures that are followed by in-class exercises. Students would be able to view multiple lectures of five to seven minutes. With online quizzes or activities, students can be tested on what they have learned by having these interspersed. Through immediate feedback, it allows the ability to rerun lecture segments in order to clarify confusion. The instructor can lead in-class discussions or allow students to collaborate information that they have learned outside of the class. Instructors have the opportunity to monitor progress, student approaches, and clarify content.
