WHAT IS A FLIPPED CLASSROOM?
A flipped classroom is designed to help educators shift from the role of lecturer to the role of guide and facilitator. It allows traditional instructor-centered classrooms to transform into student-centered learning environments, where instructors can provide individual mentoring to each student.
This “flipped” model allows students to interact with primary source content outside of the classroom to develop foundational knowledge and dedicates valuable class time to:
- Resolving misconceptions through collaborative problem-solving activities
- Elevating knowledge into application-level tasks and skills practice
- Increasing student engagement and confidence
