Benefits for teachers and students
There are various benefits for staff and students in using the flipped classroom model:
- Provides students with the flexibility to access 'lecture' content in their own time. If this content is presented as a video, students can pause and repeat as required and focus on problem areas, working through the material in a self-paced manner.
- Allows the teacher to pre-record 'lecture' type presentations and re-use that content for multiple cohorts (e.g. partner delivery) and in future semesters.
- Frees up valuable face-to-face classroom time for more active learning, which moves away from the students having to focus on taking notes during class.
