Ready to flip: 3 ways to hold students accountable for preclass work
from Faculty Focus
One of the most frequent questions faculty ask about the flipped classroom model is: "How do you encourage students to actually do the pre-class work and come to class prepared?" This really is not a new question for educators. We've always assigned some type of homework, and there have always been students who do not come to class ready to learn. However, the flipped classroom conversation has launched this question straight to the top of the list of challenges faculty face when implementing this model in their classrooms. By design, the flipped model places more emphasis on the importance of homework or preclass work to ensure that in-person class time is effective, allowing the instructor and the students to explore higher levels of application and analysis together. If students are unprepared, it leads to frustration, stress and anxiety for everyone.
