WSQ (Whisk) Away to FlipClass Success: Designing an Effective Flipped Learning Environment


Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 6.32.18 PMFlipping your class is not about having students watch videos at home. It’s about designing a dynamic, engaging, student-centered learning environment where you always consider the best use of the face-to-face time you have with students in order to improve and deepen learning. In this webinar for the Digital Educator community, Crystal Kirch discussed the shifts required for flipped learning, and how to design an effective flipped learning environment using her WSQ strategy. The WSQ is a tool that helps to organize content and materials, hold students accountable for actually watching the content, gives structured processing time for students to think deeply about their learning, gather feedback from students about their understanding and misconceptions, and prepares for and facilitates discussion among students during class time. In addition, Crystal debunked myths and misconceptions about flipping the classroom, gave tips for content creation and curation, and shared student feedback on the value of a flipped classroom. Whether you are completely new to the idea of flipped learning, have dabbled in it a bit, or have been flipping for a while, this webinar will help you reflect on and refine your mindset and approach towards flipping your classroom.
