Abstract

This workshop will introduce participants to the “flipped classroom” and provide them with hands-on experience planning a library session that uses this new approach. In the flipped classroom, lectures are replaced with pre-class assignments, usually in the form of videos or online tutorials. Class time can then be used for active learning exercises that deepen students’ knowledge of the material.

Participants will be asked to complete a pre-assignment, which can be finished just prior to the session. Workshop leaders will begin by reviewing the flipped classroom and describing the flipped lessons they have used at their academic library (15 minutes). Participants will then work in small groups to develop their own flipped lesson plans (20 minutes). Groups will select a learning objective and complete a handout to help them determine the content and medium of their pre-class assignment, and the content and active learning strategies for the in-class work. As they develop their lesson, one group member will record observations about the effectiveness of the flipped approach for this workshop. The entire workshop will then discuss the planning process, share their lessons, and reflect on their flipped experience (15 minutes).

The session will close with a summary of the presenters’ research on the flipped classroom (15 minutes). They are completing a multi-semester study of the effectiveness of the flipped classroom for one-shot library sessions in business, education, and health sciences. Preliminary data will be presented, as well as tips and lessons-learned. Time will be reserved for questions (10 minutes).
