Scratching your head about that strange use of “flipped”?

February 8, 2012

As in “flipped class”? This post from CoreDogs may revolutionize your teaching practice. Add some game-based goodness, and you’ve got my teaching practice. Yes, it threatens people; yes, it makes you feel like you’re actually helping students learn, rather than showing off your own brilliance (though you still get to do that–I promise).

Outside class, students learn concepts, and then do exercises. They submit their work over the Web. They get fast feedback. When class meets (maybe 1 hour per week, rather than 3 hours for a regular college class), the instructor gives students personal, one-on-one help.
