Course Overview:

The flipped classroom is a much-publicized model. But flipping "bad" instruction won't lead to good instruction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Draw on prior knowledge of flipped learning strategies to construct new understanding through interaction with current research literature involving the relevance of inquiry-based instruction.

  • Develop unique flipped learning strategies using inquiry-based learning.

  • Utilize the 5E lesson cycle model to create inquiry-based flipped lesson plans.

  • Practice creating interactive instructional videos, being mindful of incorporating inquiry-based questioning strategies throughout.

  • Participate in collaborative discussions with colleagues, including plans for measuring the effectiveness of their flipped classroom practices.
