Flipped Classroom Final Thoughts


Now that you have completed all of the units in this course, there are a few final thoughts that I would like to share:

Remember these key points when implementing the Flipped Classroom approach:

  • Giving students control over learning may be difficult, but will be rewarding in the end
  • Helping students identify learning as their overall goal may make adoption easier
  • Preparing and training students in techniques to get the most from pre-class lessons is important (eliminate distractions, pause to take notes, jot down questions)
  • Students must be engaged in meaningful learning activities during class to deepen and enrich the learning

You have now completed the Turning Learning Upside Down: Planning a Flipped Classroom Lesson mini course! I hope you have learned some useful information about planning a flipped classroom lesson and can use it as a tool in your teaching.
