Flipping the Classroom
What is Flipping the Classroom?
This video from PSU provides a definition and examples of flipping the classroom:
Flipping the classroom involves finding or recording videos and screencasts (narrated recordings of a computer screen) that students watch before class time. Instead of (only) lecturing during class time, students can watch lectures and videos from home; during class, students can do more interactive activities such as practicing problems, collaborative learning, active learning, formative assessment with classroom response systems, and the like. This is considered “flipping” the classroom, because the normal class-time activity (lecture) is done from home, while homework-like activities (practicing problems) can be done during class time.
- Please see the video screencasts page for information and tips on creating effective screencasts for use in a flipped classroom.
