Dr. Barbi Honeycutt, Founder of Flip It Consulting, and Sarah Glova, President of Reify Media and a Flip It Associate, teamed up to write 101 Ways to FLIP Your Online Class. This 50-page idea booklet is packed with new ways to engage students and enhance learning in the online environment. Designed for the busy educator, it’s an easy book to flip (pun intended!) through to find your next idea for your online class.

Book Excerpt:

The flipped classroom has become one of the latest buzzwords in education. The philosophy behind the flipped model isn’t new, but new terminology and advances in technology have reignited discussions and debates among educators, encouraging us to re-think how we spend our time with our students and how we can add value to our courses.

The concept of the flip was first introduced by Lage, Platt, & Treglia (2000) who referred to this idea as inverted instruction. The flipped philosophy borrows from this inverted course design model as well as from active learning strategies and student-centered learning theories. The flipped approach has most commonly been defined in the context of the face-to-face classroom where students watch pre-recorded lectures outside of class and then complete homework during class time. That’s one way to flip, but there are many other ways to flip a class.

This is why we’ve expanded on the definition of the flip. In our work, the FLIP means to Focus on your Learners by Involving them in the Process (Honeycutt, 2012). At its core, the FLIP is really the switch from instructor-focused design towards a more student-focused design where students are engaging in activities, applying concepts, and focusing on higher-level learning outcomes during class time.

Here are the first 3 strategies:

Strategy 1
Record a two- to three-minute welcome video to introduce yourself and share your excitement about the course. Email the video to students before the course opens, so they are ready to get started when the semester begins.

Strategy 2
During the first week of class, create a scavenger hunt with your course website. Ask students to locate important information, announcements, and deadlines. Offer an incentive for the winner, such as the first choice on presentation topics or an extra-credit point on the final.

Strategy 3
Embed quiz questions within your videos.
