Tips for Designing Flipped Learning Experiences

Use Backward Design Principles

An effective way to design a flipped session is to ensure that your flipped learning session will align with your course/block goals and learning objectives is to use the principles of "backward design" for curriculum development. 

Include Formative Assessment

Every flipped design should include formative assessment of pre-session learning so that instructors may determine whether students are ready to use that knowledge in the live session. This can occur before students arrive for or during the "group space" activity (live session).

Use Bloom's Taxonomy

Bloom's Taxonomy helps us to decide whether to assign specific learning objectives to the pre-session experience or live session. For assistance in developing a flipped learning session, check out the Flipped Learning Network, or contact the Karen Spear Ellinwood, PhD, JD, Director of Instructional Development.
