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.
Flipped Learning Usage at Coventry University
In order to gain an understanding of the current use of flipped learning approaches within Coventry University, the Disruptive Media Learning Lab distributed a survey in November/December 2015. The survey asked teaching staff about the type of flipped learning approaches they used and whether there had been any noticeable outcomes as a result of using non-traditional teaching methods. 97 staff responded to the survey.
