The Complete Guide for Implementing the Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture

EDUC 600

Due to Khan Academy’s popularity, the idea of the flipped classroom has gained press and credibility within educational circles. The lecture or didactic component of the lesson becomes available to the learner as a video during his or her own time – often as homework.  The advantage of the flipped classroom is that the content, often the theoretical/lecture-based component of the lesson, becomes more easily accessed and controlled by the learners leaving classroom time to engage in experiential activities, group discussions, and critical reflection.  This course will present the Flipped Classroom Model, a model where the video lectures and vodcasts fall within a larger framework of learning activities. It provides a sequence of learning activities based on the learning theories and instructional models of Experiential Learning Cycles.  In the first course (Engage with the Flipped Classroom), strategies and tools, both technology-based and hands-on were addressed for the different phases of the Flipped Classroom learning cycle. In this second course, you will develop your own instructional strategies and lesson plans for implementing the Flipped Classroom within your own work setting.


Educators will be able to:

  • Understand and articulate how The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture learning cycle is driven by essential questions and connected concepts.
  • Develop a lesson plan based on a full cycle of learning where the instructional videos and video lectures fall within a larger framework of learning activities.
  • Learn and apply strategies for evaluating The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture lesson plan.
  • Develop authentic assessments that are congruent with The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture.
