Flipping the Classroom

By Cynthia J. Brame

What are the key elements of the flipped classroom?

Provide an opportunity for students to gain first exposure prior to class

Provide an incentive for students to prepare for class. In all the examples cited above, students completed a task associated with their preparation….and that task was associated with points. The assignment can vary; the examples above used tasks that ranged from online quizzes to worksheets to short writing assignments,

Provide a mechanism to assess student understanding.

much of the feedback students need is provided in class, reducing the need for instructors to provide extensive commentary outside of class

Provide in=class activities that focus on higher level cognitive activities.
