The Flipped Classroom

Start Date Start - End Time Venue Places Taken

Duration: 2 hours

Coordinator: Dr Deanne Gannaway

Presenter: Ms Anthea Groessler

The Flipped Classroom is an introductory course that explores an approach to teaching and learning where students gain first exposure to lecture material before they attend class. Lecture time is then freed for active learning with peers and guidance from teachers. We will explore design principles of the flipped classroom as well as active learning strategies and technologies to support higher order thinking, interaction and engagement. Participants will be asked to undertake a pre-workshop activity to help prepare for the workshop.

This course will enable participants to:

1. Explore definitions of the flipped classroom
2. Discuss pedagogical reasons for, and challenges of, implementing the flipped classroom
3. Explore design principles of the flipped classroom
4. Consider active learning pedagogies and technologies to support flipped classroom design
5. Explore examples of how the flipped classroom has been implemented in various disciplinary contexts
6. Discuss and develop ideas for their flipped classroom design.

As part of Professional Learning at UQ, ITaLI have developed additional resources to support our workshops. These resources are self-paced and have been designed to encourage participant learning, and provide opportunities for further development in the workshop topic.
