Flipped Learning

Flipped Learning, sometimes referred to as reversed learning, is an increasingly popular teaching method. It’s a style of blended learning where students are required to gain knowledge of a subject prior to a seminar or lecture using online resources, usually video recordings, sometimes created by the lecturer and sometimes Open Educational Resources. Face to face time (lecture time) is then used to test students understanding of the subject by applying the knowledge using problem based learning or question sets.

 Flipped Learning Explained


What to consider before Flipping

  1. What will you Flip (single lecture, topic, module)?
  2. How will you source your videos (make, curate or a combination)?
  3. What software and equipment will you need to produce the content (recording your lectures)?
  4. How will you check if your students have interacted with the online content (learning analytics)?
  5. What activities will you do in the face to face sessions so that students apply their knowledge?
