Model 1

Flipped classroom

  • It is already standard flipped classroom design, acknowledge by the majority of implementers and  developed from the best practices 

  • It relates to whole course transition or development in the flipped format.

  • It starts from development of knowledge delivery part in the form of videos lectures or textual materials, primarily before the class .

  • To make your students watch the videos the control element is used like quiz, simple assignment and etc.

  • Class times starts from bridging preparation part with in class activities and covering the gaps

  1.  START SMALL

  • Design flipped classroom for one module/class/ workshop

  • Divide  it according to the basic elements which comprise FC

  • Make a comparison with Traditional format 

  2.   BRIDGE BEFORE AND IN CLASS

Create contextual links between preparation and in class parts via supplements in the beginning of the class:

  • Quiz/Exercise to control video views and check the understanding (especially if there were no quiz/exercise within the preparation part )

  • Summary to cover the main points from preparation part, to underline more important materials;

  • Discussion to address the gaps uncovered in preparation part

  3.  MOTIVATE  

One of the main challenges to make students come prepared to the class. There are different motivation approaches among them the control elements is the most popular.  : 

  • Quiz (control element)  

  • Exercises (control element)  

  • Exciting and engaging pre-work

  • Simple and clear pre-work 

  • Failure tolerant pre-work 

  • Strong connection and dependence of in class work and pre-work 

  • Awarding and accountability for successful pre-work 

Control element is not necessary part of preparation work but rather one possible (and generally used) motivation instrument to track that learners come prepared for the class 

The main difference of this flipped classroom from the standard is that there are no face-to-face meetings in the class, but everything arranged in virtual. Therefore activities can differ significantly from real class.

CHECK COURSE TRANSITION EXAMPLES 

Example1:"Digitalization in education" workshop
Professional Level (teachers and administration) 2 h- workshop
Systems-Engineering department
  • Before the workshop learners familiarize with some e-learning designs materials for 30 min -1 h

  • Among them, short videos, links, articles and open source tools. Additional reading: scientific articles. 

  • The session started from quiz and discussion about the topic. During the session you will learn more about existing learning designs and try to develop first elements of your future blended or online course.

Example 2:"E-learning as a tool for collaboration between university and business" workshop
Professional Level (teachers and administration) 4 h- workshop
Vladimir State University
Example 3:"Systematic creativity and TRIZ "course
Master Level. 78 h- intensive 1 week course 
Systems-Engineering department
On the picture above the design of the course "Systematic Creativity and TRIZ" in preceding Traditional form and Flipped form. The course is an intensive one week everyday classes. Different course elements are divided by colors. Blue refer to more passive lecture , orange refer to active elements, blue to preparation part.  The benefits from design:
  1. Via flipped classroom active time were increased from 28 h to 38 h. 
  2. Lecture time with exercises was partially substituted by videos (4h preparation) and redesigned in 10 h mini lectures each no more than 30 min.

The main difference of this flipped classroom from the standard is that there are no face-to-face meetings in the class, but everything arranged in virtual. Therefore activities can differ significantly from real class.
