The Flipped Classroom

Discussion / Round Table
Hybrid Learning

The flipped classroom is a new approach to maximizing classroom time by using technology to “flip” the traditional model of teaching so that lectures are offered outside of class, and homework is done in class. With teacher-created videos and interactive lessons, instruction that used to occur in class is now accessed at home, in advance of class. Class becomes the place to work through problems, advance concepts and engage in collaborative learning. Most importantly, all aspects of instruction can be rethought to best maximize the scarcest learning resource of all—time.
