Preparing to Teach a Flipped Course

To ensure a healthy and safe return to campus, face-to-face courses will be subject to a number of social-distancing guidelines, which will, in many cases, necessitate significant changes to a course’s structure and format, including reduced class sizes, staggered schedules, and modified physical spaces.  These changes have many implications and will likely require instructors to broadly reimagine teaching and learning in their courses and to ultimately identify novel methods or adapt and repurpose existing ones.  One such method - and the focus of this guide - is flipped learning. 


Our objective with this guide is to provide guidance about how you might leverage flipped learning and its underlying principles to teach effectively in socially-distanced classrooms. We have attempted to answer some of the important questions that may arise as you attempt to implement flipped learning in this unique context.
