Enter the Flipped Classroom. On the most basic level the flipped classroom is a model that turns the methodology upside-down (hence the flipped name). It removes the teacher as the "sage on the stages" and creates an atmosphere for them to be the "guide on the side".
After a quarter and a half pilot last year, we are going to venture into a year long expedition into the Flipped Classroom. Many things were learned from that experience. I was very pleased with the results and student feedback was also very positive. As with any effort, there are numerous ideas and improvements that I am looking forward to this year.
