Flipped Classroom FAQ Twelve months ago, had I asked just about anyone on my campus about the idea of the “flipped classroom,” they would have looked at me wondering what I was talking about. A lot has changed in the last year, however, thanks in large part to stories in the Chronicle of Higher Education about the flipped classroom approach and related technologies. Now I regularly have faculty members bring up the idea and ask me what I think about it. However, there are many who haven’t heard about the flipped classroom, and many who have heard about it have a particular set of misconceptions about it. I would like to address both groups in this blog post through a FAQ about the flipped classroom.

How to Create a Rapid E-Learning Tab in PowerPoint A few years back, I was at a workshop where the PowerPoint team was showing some of the new features in the soon-to-be-released PowerPoint 2010. As they were talking about the features, one of them mentioned the ability to combine shapes to create your own.

Designing For Bite-sized Learning After identifying a training need, learning designers often think of the solution as a “program”—the classroom experience, the online courses, and the Learning Management System to organize it all. While robust programs might be best for certain projects, leaving out the in-between “snack times” could mean missed opportunities to engage and reinforce learning. Microlearning, also called “bite-sized learning,” is great strategy for helping learners solve real problems or keeping the them connected to the topic long-term. Bite-sized learning was the topic at our February 2015 Collaborative Learning Network session. As always, the versatile professionals from a mix of industries—healthcare, creative agencies, government programs, and education—helped the topic come alive. We spent 90 minutes defining microlearning, looking at examples, and sharing our own experiences with it as learners and designers.

Employers use eLearning to enhance traditional safety training methods Earlier this year I wrote an article on three ways to improve instruction delivered via electronic means, or eLearning. Several people posted replies. “You are definitely on the right track to envision eLearning as more than just content delivery, and more than a replacement of classroom learning. We can use it to support learning at the point of need, make it readily available as needed, and make it flexible enough to aid decision-making,” one commenter said. Another commenter astutely noted that the success or failure of eLearning depends on management engagement: “Unless the manager is brought in, individuals won’t be given time to do the learning or scope to practice it afterwards. In the organizations I have worked with, the best way to improve learning is to get managers engaged first.”
