The goal of implementing a flipped, or "inverted", classroom is to maximize the impact of the time that faculty and students spend together in the classroom by cultivating deep learning during that time. By first exposing students to course content before class (through videos, for example), class time can be spent deepening their understanding of that content through active learning exercises.
This university-wide service consists of an initial discussion of course context and instructional objectives with ITS staff to determine why and whether to flip and, if so, where to start. The plan, once outlined, includes the design and preparation of active content and learning exercises, the development of course delivery of flipped instruction, outcome evaluation, and support in the choice of which technologies and resources to use.
Successful flipped classroom outcomes include:
