The Flipped Classroom


Homework traditionally follows classwork: a teacher introduces the subject matter then homework reinforces the learning.

Now that facts and information are just a quick search away, learners need to know more than ever how to evaluate, understand and apply information.

Flipped learning reverses the traditional order so that time out of class is used to acquire knowledge and activity in class is directed to understanding and extending it, exploring the issues, difficulties and applications.

This module looks at how best to make use of this in our professional practice with learners.


Understanding the flipped classroom approach


After completing this module you will be able to:
- select appropriate digital tools to support a flipped classroom
- identify areas where a flipped classroom approach could improve the learner experience
- critically assess the value of the flipped classroom approach

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - B2 : Teaching context: face-to-face

  • Use learning environment technologies to support teaching, e.g. electronic whiteboards, mobile devices.
  • Structure sessions so that different (practitioner-led and learner-led) digital activities jointly reinforce the learning objective.
  • Structure and manage content, collaboration and interaction in a digital environment.
  • Consider how practitioner-led digital interventions can best support the learning objective.
  • Reflect on the effectiveness and appropriateness of the digital teaching strategies chosen and flexibly adjust methods and strategies.
  • Experiment with and develop new formats and teaching methods (e.g. flipped classroom).

Great module. Very simple to understand and work through and it helps you realise how easy and beneficial it is to have a flipped learning model. It will save teachers so much time and allow them to focus on learning in the classroom.  Report this review

Good, well formed explanations with an appropriate and direct assessment. Unlike other modules here, the answer wasn't vague and subjective. I'd love to see more scenarios explored in assessment to get ideas flowing.  Report this review

I've been advocating the use of the flipped classroom model with tutors for quite some time and I really like how concise and informative the module is. I will be recommending this (and the further resources) in our tutor meetings.  Report this review

Useful module on the basics of flipped learning for those new to the concept, or as a refresher for those who have some experience using the method. Bite size module useful for busy practitioners to up skill without having to commit to long units that do not fit within busy timetables. Unlike the collaborative modules I has issues with the drag and drop exercise on iPad, however worked ok on laptop.  Report this review

Short and sweet- with useful resources too. Easy to apply I think in almost any setting, and I'll certainly give it a go.  Report this review
