Teaching strategies are important, but successful flipped and active learning classrooms aren’t just about the teaching strategies. You can have the best idea for an activity that perfectly addresses your learning outcomes, but there are many other variables you need to consider as you plan a flipped lesson, or redesign your whole course, if you want it to be successful.
The purpose of this Success Guide is to help you examine the seven characteristics of successful flipped and active learning classrooms. Each section of the book includes an overview of each characteristic, a description of how it influences the flipped learning environment, and what you’ll notice if you aren’t paying attention to that characteristic. Each section also includes reflection questions for you to consider as you think about why your flipped lesson or course isn’t working the way you thought it would and what to do about it.
