The dos and don'ts of flipping your classroom

The flipped learning approach is becoming increasingly popular with teachers. Penny Humm has embraced the concept in her classroom and discusses some dos and don’ts to help get you started.

At Bellerbys College in Cambridge, where I teach GCSE physics to international students, we have been trialling flipped learning for almost a year now. 

Our approach to the trial has been to run it along the lines of an action research project, which means rather than publishing a paper or report at each stage or milestone, we actually carry out the activity – in a managed way – reflect on what happened and then improve the process based on those insights for the next cycle. 

It is been challenging and invigorating (if not a little stressful at times!), but the results have been interesting and the project continues to evolve in a positive way.
