Get the Book! Flipping the College Classroom: Practical Advice from Faculty



Question: Where can I find practical advice about flipping the college classroom?
 

Answer:  We're finally starting to see more peer-reviewed journal articles related to flipping college classrooms. But, there's still a need for practical, "how to" resources to help faculty think about how to implement the flipped model.

That's why I'd like to recommend my book Flipping the College Classroom: Practical Advice from Faculty * (Magna Publications, 2016).

It was released during the Teaching Professor Technology Conference and the feedback has been very positive. It's been so much fun to meet readers and sign a few books! 

About the Book:


As the editor and a contributing author, I analyzed Faculty Focus articles, Magna Online Seminars, 20-Minute Mentor videos, and the feedback from the 2015 Faculty Focus survey on flipped classroom trends. I invited 14 faculty members representing a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds to contribute a chapter and share their advice.

I believe this book presents some of the most current thinking and practical advice about how to plan, implement, and assess the flipped learning model in higher education.

I divided the book into five chapters, and each chapter ends with questions you can use for continued reflection, discussion, and application. Here's a quick overview:

Chapter 1:  Organizing and Planning the Flipped Classroom

  • What to consider before you flip 
  • How to decide what to flip 
  • How to organize a flipped lesson

Chapter 2: Supporting Students: Preparation, Motivation, and Resistance

  • How to encourage students to come to class prepared 
  • How to help support students understand their new role in the flipped classroom
  • What to do to address student resistance and lack of motivation

Chapter 3: Connecting With and Reaching All Students

  • How to integrate the principles of Universal Design for Learning into your flipped lesson 
  • How to think about the flipped model in large classes 
  • What to consider for your introverted learners in the flipped classroom

Chapter 4: Assessing Learning in the Flipped Classroom

  • What types of assessment strategies work best with the flipped model 
  • How to organize and assess group work 
  • What to consider as you develop a grading process in the flipped classroom

Chapter 5: Integrating Technology into the Flipped Classroom

  • How to make the online part of your flipped classroom more engaging 
  • How to use tech tool for grading and giving feedback 
  • How to use tech tools effectively in the classroom to engage students 


The book concludes with future directions for the flipped classroom, a copy of the findings from the 2015 Faculty Focus survey, templates and worksheets, and a list of references.

No matter where you are in your flipped classroom journey, I hope this will be a helpful resource for you. As always, I'd love to hear your feedback, ideas, and questions. Leave a comment below or email me: barbi@flipitconsulting.com.
