What's the Flippin' Difference? The Implementation and Effectiveness of Flipped Learning

Flipped learning involves moving passive, background instruction outside of the classroom, reserving in-class time for student-centered learning activities that fortify and support long-lasting learning. The effectiveness of flipped learning over traditional, passive, lecture-based instruction has been demonstrated in published studies for years. However, many instructors remain resistant to adopting flipped learning for two well-founded reasons: (1) they lack the tools needed to implement flipped learning in their classroom and/or (2) they remain skeptical about the effectiveness of this approach. This session seeks to address both concerns. First, the design of an effectively implemented flipped course in undergraduate genetics will be presented so that instructors will have the tools needed to implement a similar approach in their own classrooms. Second, the results of a comparison study will be shared, where two parallel sections of undergraduate genetics were offered; one flipped and the other traditional, with active learning components integrated throughout.  With these results in hand, participants will leave this session able to make informed choices regarding the effectiveness and usefulness of adopting flipped learning and the need for active learning in the college classroom.
