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.
