The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model that inverts traditional teaching methods so that typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. This means that instruction is delivered online outside of class and work that students would normally do outside of class is moved into the classroom.A primary theory that underpins flipped classroom pedagogy is "active learning" which is "anything that involves students in doing things and thinking about the things they are doing" The flipped classroom supports this type of learning as it exposes students to concepts through online activities prior to the face-to-face class, and ensures that class time enables students the opportunity to actively exercise higher cognitive functions e.g problem solving. Moreover, the formative feedback provided during class time helps instructors clarify knowledge and misconceptions so as to ensure students are able to organise their new knowledge in a way that is more accessible for future use.
This LTC workshop will be delivered in a flipped mode (lhr online 2hrs F2f) to demonstrate the importance of understanding the pedagogy before engaging with the learning technology. The flipped classroom supports the UOW Curriculum model- Hybrid Learning@UOW
