Description

Medical Educators face a number of challenges in training a new generation of residents with unique learning styles and expectations. The ‘Flipped Classroom’ model seems to be a good tool when faced with time constraints to allow in depth learning of a topic, It allows the learner to assimilate basic information from material placed online and frees the teacher to use the face to face interaction time for training the learner in advanced concepts involving higher order cognitive skills. This model involves a redesign of course curriculum as well as use of multiple teaching tools and intelligent use of existing technology in your institution.

This lab will be useful for educators in any field as the skill in transferable across specialties. After completing this activity the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the process of flipping the classroom
  • Name the pros and cons of using the flipped classroom approach
  • Be able to create a course using the flipped classroom model
