What Is Flipping the Classroom?

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. The notion of a flipped classroom draws on such concepts as active learning, student engagement, hybrid course design, and course podcasting. The value of a flipped class is in the repurposing of class time into a workshop where students can inquire about lecture content, test their skills in applying knowledge, and interact with one another in hands-on activities.

From Vanderbilt University's Guide to Flipping the Classroom:

Provide an opportunity for students to gain first exposure prior to class.

 Provide an incentive for students to prepare for class.

Provide a mechanism to assess student understanding.

 Provide in-class activities that focus on higher level cognitive activities.
