Best Practices for Flipping the College Classroom provides a comprehensive overview and systematic assessment of the flipped classroom methodology in higher education. The book: Reviews various pedagogical theories that inform flipped classroom practice and provides a brief history from its inception in K–12 to its implementation in higher education. Offers well-developed and instructive case studies chronicling the implementation of flipped strategies across a broad spectrum of academic disciplines, physical environments, and student populations. Provides insights and suggestions to instructors in higher education for the implementation of flipped strategies in their own courses by offering reflections on learning outcomes and student success in flipped classrooms compared with those employing more traditional models and by describing relevant technologies. Discusses observations and analyses of student perceptions of flipping the classroom as well as student practices and behaviors particular to flipped classroom models. Illuminates several research models and approaches for use and modification by teacher-scholars interested in building on this research on their own campuses. The evidence presented on the flipped classroom methodology by its supporters and detractors at all levels has thus far been almost entirely anecdotal or otherwise unreliable. Best Practices for Flipping the College Classroom is the first book to provide faculty members nuanced qualitative and quantitative evidence that both supports and challenges the value of flipping the college classroom.

Flipped instruction definitely has turned higher education on its head. The lectures that used to be the foundation of teaching have been pushed out of the classroom. In their place are activities designed to put the information from those lectures to work. What is driving this transformative shift is its promise. When done well, flipped instruction helps students process material in new ways. They do more than memorize and recall--they begin to understand, evaluate, and even create new knowledge. In other words, flipped instruction is catching on because it works. The challenge, of course, is getting it to work. Students have to be motivated to prepare for class and engaged when they arrive. Faculty members and instructors who no longer spend class time delivering information have to develop methods to facilitate learning. It is a vastly different learning environment for students and instructors alike. Fortunately, you do not have to figure it all out on your own. Some instructors have been employing and refining flipped instruction for some time now. They have determined what works--and what doesn't. Their best ideas are collected in a single resource: Flipping the College Classroom: Practical Advice from Faculty. This collection is a comprehensive guide to flipping no matter how much--or how little--experience you have with it. If you are just getting started, you will learn where and how to begin. If you have been at it for a while, you will find new ideas to try and solutions to common challenges. Flipping the College Classroom: Practical Advice from Faculty is an invaluable resource that covers all necessary territory, including how to: Plan flipped lessons Engage students in flipped instruction and active learning Motivate unprepared students Hold students accountable for pre-class work Incorporate moments of reflection into an active-learning classroom Use small-group work in flipped classrooms Integrate moments of reflection Flip courses regardless of the size of the classroom Accommodate introverted students who might be uncomfortable with the flipped model Assess in a flipped environment Use feedback to advance learning Flip online courses Best use technology in flipped instruction This guide also bridges the active-learning gaps and covers topics frequently left out of flipping conversations. Some examples of these are: Dealing with student resistance Accommodating students with disabilities Flipping instruction in diverse classrooms Handling the peer review process when flipping is not well established at your institution What's more, each chapter in this collection concludes with questions for reflection and discussion along with activities for applying what you have learned. Additional supplemental materials include lesson plan templates, grading rubrics, and sample assignments. Flipping the College Classroom: Practical Advice from Faculty is designed to be the definitive resource on flipped instruction. No matter how experienced or comfortable you are with flipping, this resource will help you accomplish more in your active-learning classroom.

Flipped learning is an approach to the design and instruction of classes through which, with appropriate guidance, students gain their first exposure to new concepts and material prior to class, thus freeing up time during class for the activities where students typically need the most help, such as applications of the basic material and engaging in deeper discussions and creative work with it. While flipped learning has generated a great deal of excitement, given the evidence demonstrating its potential to transform students’ learning, engagement and metacognitive skills, there has up to now been no comprehensive guide to using this teaching approach in higher education. Robert Talbert, who has close to a decade’s experience using flipped learning for majors in his discipline, in general education courses, in large and small sections, as well as online courses – and is a frequent workshop presenter and speaker on the topic – offers faculty a practical, step-by-step, “how-to” to this powerful teaching method. He addresses readers who want to explore this approach to teaching, those who have recently embarked on it, as well as experienced practitioners, balancing an account of research on flipped learning and its theoretical bases, with course design concepts to guide them set up courses to use flipped learning effectively, tips and case studies of actual classes across various disciplines, and practical considerations such as obtaining buy-in from students, and getting students to do the pre-class activities. This book is for anyone seeking ways to get students to better learn the content of their course, take more responsibility for their work, become more self-regulated as learners, work harder and smarter during class time, and engage positively with course material. As a teaching method, flipped learning becomes demonstrably more powerful when adopted across departments. It is an idea that offers the promise of transforming teaching in higher education.

Our primary goal in assembling this collection is to convince faculty to experiment with the "flipped" classroom. Given the techtonic shift, providing educators with an abundance of electronic resources, as well as the nature of today's students, every faculty member needs to consider the possibilities of the flip. Now that active learning has been demonstrated by research to be more effective than the pure sage-on-the-stage paradigm, flipping is a natural outgrowth with its recognition that classroom time needs to be dedicated to activities by the instructor, the individual students, and groups that promote a deeper learning of the material. This book offers a guide for those faculty members wishing to make the first steps, taking the instructor from preparation for the flipped class experience through actual out-of-class assignments, in-class activities, electronic resources available for support, and even assessment of student performance and class effectiveness.
