A Powerful Learning Experience

An emerging best practice of the “flipped classroom” is the model for our educational events at Transformance Advisors.

Our classroom sessions are energized and powerful learning experiences. While outside the classroom, knowledge keeps flowing via articles, videos, project work, and other assignments.

Classroom time is reduced while total knowledge acquisition is increased.

You can have your cake and eat it too!

A few frequently asked questions include:

  1. What is a flipped classroom?
  2. Why is it beneficial?
  3. How does it compare to traditional models?

Let’s look closer at each of these questions…

answers about flipped classroom

What is a Flipped Classroom?

what is flipped classroom

The flipped classroom is a educational model that dedicates classroom time to:

  • Team Activities
  • Learning Exercises
  • Student Presentations
  • Debate and Discussion

Most lectures, quizzes, and exams are available online and are assigned to be completed outside of the classroom.

Therefore, the traditional homework assignments and other learning activities are brought into the classroom and the traditional classroom activities become the homework.

Just like that, the classroom is indeed FLIPPED!

Why is it Beneficial?

By removing lectures, quizzes, and exams from the classroom, time is freed up to:

  • Increase peer interaction through team-based activities, such as simulations and group exercises
  • Increase confidence through student presentations and how they can apply the knowledge at their organizations
  • Improved student-teacher interaction through open debate and discussion

When class is in session:

  • Instructors act as coaches – encouraging students, leading class discussions, and addressing topics of concern
  • Students participate in many activities and learning from one another

Outside the classroom, online materials allow students to:

  • Learn at their own pace
  • Fast forward, rewind, and pause
  • Revisit any concept
  • Prepare to debate and discuss back in the classroom

How does it compare to traditional models?

In a number of surveys, the results have been astonishingly consistent.

A study by the Flipped Learning Network found:

  • 80% of participants had increased attitudes
  • 67% of participants had increased grades

Our own observations get beyond the numbers:

  • Classrooms sessions are full of energy and noise
  • Total knowledge transfer has been increased
  • Time is reserved checking emails and staying plugged-in
  • Networking is increased and personal friendships are made

The evidence is convincing; the flipped classroom is a more effective learning experience.
