What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom by @katessoper
A flipped classroom is one where the lectures become the homework and the traditional homework tasks take place in the lesson time. This enables students to attend sessions with an understanding of the subject and to conceptualise and build upon it through doing exercises in class, with you, as the tutor, on hand to answer questions and explore the topic in more detail. This moves the tutor from the “sage on the stage, to the guide on the side” (King, 1993). This is a re-blog post by Kate Soper and published with kind permission. The original post can be found here.

Flipping your classroom does involve a bit of planning and preparation, however when it is implemented well it has a positive impact on the student experience and their attainment (Nwosisi et al, 2016, Bishop & Verleger, 2013, ).
