Just Flip a Little Bit

My first introduction to the flipped classroom was a few months ago, and totally blew my mind.  What a brilliant idea, and so obvious!  Of course class time should be for content application, not content delivery!  And of course I would want to go whole hog on the idea, and flip every bit of every workshop… but according to this video, there might be a better way:

The Flipped Class: Overcoming Common Hurdles

Take the part of the workshops that students tend to struggle with the most, and flip that.  A less pressure filled start for me, doesn’t turn their whole world upside down at once, and targets the material that needs classroom application time the most.  Makes sense!
