Seven Steps to Flipped Learning Design

Before I wrote my book on flipped learning, I wrote up a 25-page workbook to help faculty in my flipped learning workshops. This workbook, Seven Steps to Flipped Learning Design, is inspired by Dee Fink's classic A Self-Directed Guide to Designing Courses for Significant Learning.

You can download this workbook for free, by clicking here. (This opens the file in Google Drive, and there's a download option.)

This workbook is meant to be used as part of a flipped learning design workshop, but can also be used by individuals as a self-directed guide to setting up a course using flipped learning principles. The workbook features:

  • A discussion of the concept and definition of flipped learning – what it is, and what it is not, and why this matters
  • A step-by-step guide through the seven steps of flipped learning design, starting with the writing of learning objectives all the way through designing good in-class and post-class activities
  • A discussion of some of the burning questions about flipped learning, including how to handle student engagement in pre-class work

Each of the seven steps is laid out clearly with activities to apply to your course design, as you're building the course.

I hope you find it useful! And if you are interested in having me come to your campus to lead you and your colleagues through this process, please check out my Speaking page.
