Flipped Learning

Planning for flipped learning

  1. Plan
    Figure out which lesson, or series of lessons in particular you want to flip.
    Outline the key learning outcomes and concepts.
  2. Record
    Make a video. Try to ensure that the video content utilises techniques to reduce cognitive load such as dual coding, particularly if you are recording a presentation.
  3. Independent Learning Activity
    Consider a short learning activity that accompanies the video.  For example, you may wish to
    • create a diagnostic quiz that will allow you to see how well the learners have understood the content/identify any misconceptions
    • visualise the video content as a concept map or infographic and add to a OneNote page
    • create a set of flash cards about the topic

4. In Class
In class, you can spend more time engaging learners in higher order thinking tasks, practical activities, groups work.

You can use the learner evidence from the independent learning activity to facilitate discussion and debate, or tackle misconceptions.  

Some other strategies that can be used in in-class activities, either in person or online include:

  • Active learning
    Allow students to apply concepts in class where they can ask peers or instructors for feedback and clarification.
    There are a variety of digital tools that you may find useful for in class, or remote use.
  • Concept Testing.
    Students can explain their understanding to each other by explaining concepts and misconceptions or working on small problems.
  • Collaborative learning.
    Collaborative learning activities could increase student engagement, enhance student understanding, and promote collective intelligence.

    Multi-authoring features of cloud based productivity suites such as Office365 and Gsuite allow learners to work together on the same documents in real time.

    in a virtual live environment, tools such as Jamboard in Google Classroom, Whiteboard in Teams or the collaboration space in Class Notebook can all be used for lcollaboration

Flipped Learning Definitions

Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter

FLIP Learning

We define the flipped classroom as an educational technique that consists of two parts: interactive group learning activities inside the classroom, and direct computer-based individual instruction outside the classroom. 

Linguistics Vol. 5, No. 2, International Journal of Language and June 2018 

Flipped Learning is a framework that enables educators to reach every student. The Flipped approach inverts the traditional classroom model by introducing course concepts before class, allowing educators to use class time to guide each student through active, practical, innovative applications of the course principles.
