Course Profile: Flipped Classroom

Instructional Profile: Flipped Classroom


"Flipped classroom is a form of blended learning which brings an interactive engagement pedagogy to classrooms by having students learn content online, usually at home, and homework is done in class with teachers and students discussing and solving questions. Teacher interaction with students is more personalized - guidance instead of lecturing. This is also known as backwards classroom, inverted classroom, reverse teaching, and the Thayer Method".


Best Practices

  • Work with an Instructional Designer
  • Does your subject matter lend itself to flipping?
  • Videos should be short (<10 minutes)
  • Allow time for experimentation
  • Start small
  • Prepare students for the transition involved
  • Build reflective activities for your students to reflect about their learning



Be aware of the technologies available for flipping your class, but use them mindfully. Begin thinking about your learning objectives, and only use a technology if it will help students satisfy objectives.


Typical Technologies employed in Flipping:

Learning Management System (LMS), myCourses (UNH LMS) helps to organize course content, providing a place for online discussion, assess students, and deliver grades.

Kaltura (within your LMS) for the lecture recording, lecture sharing and presentations.

YouTube & Vimeo (outside your LMS) for the lecture recording, lecture sharing and presentations.

Student Response System (i>Clicker -- supported by UNH IT), Poll Everywhere, Socrative, TopHat -- not supported by UNH IT) for gathering feedback from students during Face-to-Face sessions.
