Okay, my fellow professors,let’s talk about this “flipped classroom” fad. There’s lots of different ways of teaching. It’s good to innovate and try out new things, because that’s how you improve. Our students learn in different ways, so we should offer them a variety of different kinds of teaching. If a “flipped classroom” works for your class, that’s great. I’m fine with all this.
But if you think “students learn the material on their own time and then discuss it in class” is a new and innovative teaching strategy, you are doing teaching wrong.
