I’m just beginning to think about integrating active learning and flipped course design. What should I know before I FLIP my class?

I’m glad you’re taking a moment to think carefully about how to integrate these ideas you’re your classes. You’ll save time and frustration by following a few guidelines and learning from the advice of other faculty who have successfully integrated the FLIP into their classes.

First, remember, in my work the FLIP means to Focus on your Learners by Involving them in the Process. There’s more than one way to do this. It’s not just about recording videos of lectures. It’s about thinking strategically and planning carefully so you can design experiences to increase engagement and improve learning.

Here are a few resources and recommendations as you start planning:
