What is Flipped Learning?

practice that creates learning through active participation and skills development through the curation of educational experiences in a technology rich learning environment.

Flipped learning is an approach that utilises the benefits of learning technologies and places an emphasis on student participation and the learning process. Within this approach there is a wide range of potential ways in which the flipped approach might be interpreted. How it is interpreted will be impacted upon by a wide range of factors, (such as student level, professional requirements, staff experience); however any implementation of the flipped approach must be looking to enhance student participation, the learning process and staff-student interaction.

Why is Flipped Learning Important?

Through carefully curated educational experiences which maximise on the best of face-to-face and online teaching methods, flipped learning provides a rich educational environment that challenges students to explore new concepts and develop innovative solutions to a range of problems. It maximised the contact time available with students whilst providing a quality offering commensurate with excellent student experience. 

Flipped learning should practice the application of knowledge to real-world issues and simulated scenarios, supporting the development of capable, adaptable, and curious graduates with the skills needed to thrive and succeed upon completion of their studies.

What is the Disruptive Media Learning Lab?

The Disruptive Media Learning Lab (DMLL) is a semi-autonomous cross-University experimental unit whose remit is specifically to drive innovation of teaching, learning and practice forward (in the ‘Google model’: to break and remake existing ways of doing higher education) so that the University can re-model its own practices.
