In the traditional classroom model, students listen to a teacher lecture, then are assigned work to complete at home. The flipped-instruction model reverses this, so students listen to or watch lessons at home before class, then work on assignments and projects in class with the guidance of an instructor to reinforce what they have already learned. There is no one right way to flip a class—each teacher, and classroom, may require different methods.
In practical terms this means the dissemination of information can take several forms: online content, whether podcasts or video, collaborative discussions, and text-based research. Often lectures are viewed or listened to at home by the students who then complete assignments and projects in-class, with the help of the teacher. It is a change from being teacher-focused to being learner-focused, with the added intention for the student to take more responsibility for his or her learning.
There are several benefits of flipped instruction:
- Students acquire deeper knowledge—as a result of more interaction around the content, as well as giving and getting feedback from the teacher and other learners, students gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter
- Students participate actively—rather than be passive consumers of the instructor’s information, students are engaged in their own learning
- Students interact with and learn from each other—students work with each other to build a community of learning that includes peer support and tutoring
- Students get and give more feedback—with increased peer interaction, as well as guidance from the teacher, students receive more feedback, which helps identify possibly overlooked gaps in their knowledge base
