The Flipped Classroom Approach: The benefits and challenges

Flipped classroom learning isn’t all that new. In fact, the concept was already in use by educators in places of eminence like Harvard University as far back as 1991. However, the corporate world often tends to take a “wait and see” approach before wholeheartedly embracing new concepts.

So, what does it mean to flip your classroom? Put simply, it means reversing the traditional roles of class work and homework. Flipped courses provide lectures and other informational material for learners to consume on their own time, via asynchronous self-study content, video-on-demand, or other similar means.

Then, there are also components of the model where other flipped classroom activities, like group interactions, collaborative projects, and instructor-led lectures, which happen in synchronous settings – a conference room, a convention center or a corporate training facility.

Unlike a traditional, classroom-centric course, or a purely distance-learning program, the flipped classroom approach is a blended learning technique that marries the best of synchronous and asynchronous teaching approaches.
