The Flipped Classroom
In its simplest terms, the flipped classroom is about viewing and/or listening to lectures at home which frees up face-to-face class time for experiential exercises, group discussion, and question and answer sessions.
Two noteworthy problems exist when thinking about using the flipped classroom.
a. If video lectures drive the instruction, it is just a repackaging of a more traditional model of didactic learning. It is not a new paradigm nor pedagogy of learning.
b. Educators need to be re-educated as to what to do with the class time that previously was used for their lectures.
