Do you wish your students….
• Took responsibility for their learning?
• Completed coursework and actively participated in classroom discussions?
• Completed assigned work on time?
• Turned in assignments that followed directions/rubrics?
Flipped classrooms combined with blended learning strategies and techniques allow teaching faculty to combine their own creativity with technological tools that can make all of these “wishes” (and more) come true. Students in flipped and blended courses are more engaged, prepared and excited about the course materials you are eager to teach. Authors Patricia Adams and Happy Gingras—award-winning faculty members—have been teaching flipped and blended college courses for over a decade and in this book they take readers step-by-step through the process of flipping and blending a course.
