To flip or not to flip, that is the question

As a hybrid or blended learning instructor should you flip your course? Here are a couple of considerations:.

  1. Moving content outside of the classroom allows for more class time to be spent on engaging learning activities such as peer instruction or active learning.
  2. Interactive teaching techniques, such as the two mentioned above, have been shown to improves learning outcomes .
  3. With new technology which can improve the facilitation content delivery, such as lecture capture, videos, podcasts and other online information, there are now more ways for learners to access information online. The lecture format is less essential to content delivery than it once was.
  4. Students surveys show that they often prefer courses that are hybrid. Students in these classes usually usually have a greater satisfaction with the courses.
