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!
