Flipping the Online College Classroom

How you can use the flipped classroom model to create more engaging online courses


Coming in October!

The flipped classroom model has traditionally been defined in the context of the in-person classroom. We talk about what students to "in" and "out" of class. But, this doesn't work in the online space. Online courses don't have an "in" or "out" of class structure.

Does that mean we can't apply the flipped model to an online course? Absolutely not! We can adapt the model. In fact, we NEED to adapt it because today's educational experiences aren't just taking place in the in-person classroom.

We're teaching online in synchronous, asynchronous, and blended formats. Higher education is changing and the flipped classroom model should change too because we know it increases student engagement and improve learning.

So, what could the flipped model look like in an online course? How could it work? That's what we'll do in this mini-course!

I hope you'll join me as we explore the next generation of the flipped classroom!
