Commonly known as "The Flipped Classroom", I prefer to call it "The Flipped Curriculum".

Meaning that the curriculum is not poured out upon the students but rather is raised up from the students.  A bottom up approach to curriculum and knowledge/learning. 


These resources are supplements to a previous talk and discussion at the Reform Symposium Conference . I've rerecorded it and watch it here.

The main tenent behind the Flipped Curriculum is that learning is first done by the student in a self directed fashion. Teacher intervention only happens later, if at all.

This video is a must watch. It really puts the question of valuing informal learning (learning outside the classroom), front and center.

A nice video, read the associated articleabout bringing in all stakeholders to make Flipped Learning work..... Also a few articles not specifically about the Flipped Classroom but examining its spirit - pushing aside teaching and focusing on learning and new ways of engaging students.


This is a nice article about the Ohio State national football champs and how flipped learning helped them as a team. (yes, football takes a lot of learning and its all about the details...). 

Also Kirsten Winkler recounts her own positive experiencesof how the flipped classroom is perfect for language learning. 

A nice handbook describing the flipped approach.
