For those who are trying to “flip” their classroom, Turn to Your Neighbor has a new twitter feed. Every day between noon – 3PM the people behind the TTYN blog will post a tip for and by instructors using the flipped classroom model.
Of course, 140 characters is a good reminder of what to be mindful of, but doesn’t do much if you are actually in the process of figuring out how to flip your classroom. If you’re trying to do that, you might want to check out the blog: http://blog.peerinstruction.net/
What the heck is a flipped classroom? It’s a classroom centered on the Learner, not the instructor. Instructors act more like coaches, helping the students engage in activities. Students watch recorded lectures or do readings outside of class, then do things more like traditional homework during class, collaborating with their peers.
