The traditional way of setting up learning environments is to have students attend a lecture to get their first contact with new ideas, then work out the difficult parts of their learning on their own after class. Despite its long tenure, this traditional model has some serious issues regarding making sure all students get the support they need to learn. In this webinar, we explore the concept of flipped learning, where students' first contact with new ideas happens independently before class, then class time is repurposed for deeper applications and exploration. This simple shift unlocks new avenues for all students to be engaged and reach their potential. We'll look at how flipped learning helps to solve important teaching and learning problems, some real-life examples of flipped courses in higher education, and how flipped learning can be applied to online and hybrid settings.
