The Flipped learning course template is designed for courses where learners will do some pre-reading/watching before class, allowing class time to be focussed on practice, feedback and discussion. To find out more about flipped learning check out our blog post on the Flipped learning model [link].
We've structured the template to have a few welcome pages and then a separate section for each week (this could easily be based on "topics" if your course isn't structured by week).
In the Flipped learning template, we've got subsections for things you want learners to do at home, before class, and things you’ll do in class.
Before class learners might be reading, watching videos, or going through a presentation, so we’ve got template pages for each of these content types.
Below is an example of a presentation page with a task below the presentation for notes, and an in page discussion to support social learning.
We also suggest keeping learners actively engaged by including a few tasks with their pre-reading/watching. Again, we have a range of example tasks.
Tasks to support recall:
To help understanding:
Or to compare and contrast:
If you’d like, you can even include checklists for offline activities you’d like them to do before class.
In flipped learning, in class activities might be entirely offline, but having tasks and spaces for reflection/notes/evidence within the online course also means everything is in the one place and can serve as a sort of online portfolio of their learning for this course.
To that end, we have a range of pages within the Appendix of this template that you could use to record in class learning.
For example, recording discussions/group work:
Further practice tasks that provide opportunities for personalised feedback:
Recording evidence of completed class activities:
Reflecting on which learning strategies are/aren't working for them:
Filling in the rest of the weeks
This general structure or approach you’ve used in Week 1 can then be repeated for each subsequent week. You can even use starred pages to add in a copy of the relevant pages to save you time.
As with all our templates, this template is entirely customisable. You can change all the text, tasks and images to suit your particular context.
