Report: Half of University Faculty Have Flipped their Classroom or Will in the Next Year Research | News Report: Half of University Faculty Have Flipped their Classroom or Will in the Next Year Half of university faculty members have deployed the flipped classroom model or plan to within the next 12 months, according to a new survey from the Center for Digital Education and Sonic Foundry. Other key findings of the report include: "Based upon my experience, the benefits of the flipped classroom model far outweigh the challenges, and I've seen the difficulties associated with implementing the model decrease over time as efficiencies are realized," said Ralph Welsh, lecturer at Clemson University, in a prepared statement. "Based on both our research and actual use cases, the flipped classroom model is critical in shifting our educational approach from a passive one to an active one that better prepares college students for their careers ahead by engaging them in the material," said Joe Morris, director of research and analysis, Center for Digital Education, in a news release.
