Flipped university classrooms: using technology to enable sound pedagogy

Sankey, Michael and Hunt, Lynne (2014) Flipped university classrooms: using technology to enable sound pedagogy. Journal of Cases on Information Technology, 16 (2). pp. 26-38. ISSN 1548-7717


The three case studies in this paper show how flipped classroom approaches can facilitate the renewal of university teaching. The case studies form part of a scholarship of teaching and learning that provides opportunities for educators to learn from the experiences of others. Descriptions of course preparation illuminate the application of constructivist pedagogy, the affordances of a range of learning technologies, and a role for university teachers that facilitates their students’ engagement with learning. The cases outline the application of flipped classroom approaches at early and later stages of students’ learning journeys and show how they introduce parity of learning experiences for on-campus and off-campus students. The case studies show how flipped classroom approaches can be an instrument of change, forming part of institution-wide planning for coherent and effective student learning journeys. They reveal the importance of an infrastructure of learning technologies to facilitate active and interactive learning and the significance of professional development and organized support teams, including technology experts, librarians and instructional designers, in preparing the groundwork for teachers and students using flipped classroom methodologies.
