What is the flipped classroom??
A flipped classroom reverses the roles of homework and lecture, it's different from an online course. Students watch short video lectures for homework while taking notes and completing practice examples based on the video. The next day in class, we work together to review those concepts, evaluate the students understanding, and address difficulties or common misconceptions. Students then move on to complete critical thinking questions, hands-on activities, labs, debates, discussions, etc. in collaborative groups. By "flipping" the class, lectures are now under the control of the students; they can watch and re-watch as many times as needed. Devoting class time to application of chemistry concepts gives the instructor the opportunity to detect misunderstandings or errors in thinking.
