The Flipped Classroom
Strategies to Overcome Student Resistance and Increase Student Engagement

The flipped classroom model encourages students to complete preliminary work prior to class so they are prepared to engage in higher-level learning experiences during class. The success of this model depends on the students in attendance having done the preclass work you assign.

Many students don’t do the preclass assignments and come unprepared to participate. At first, this will be one of the most frustrating parts of the flipped classroom model, and you may consider abandoning the approach completely. But there are strategies you can use to address these challenges and increase students’ motivation to come to class prepared and ready to engage.

One place to begin is to understand why students are coming unprepared. What is preventing them from doing the preclass work? How can you help them see the value of the flipped classroom model? And if students are resistant to this type of learning environment, what can you do to help them adjust to their new roles?

Get answers to these questions and more when you register to attend a new webinar from Magna Publications, The Flipped Classroom: Strategies to Overcome Student Resistance and Increase Student Engagement, then listen as Dr. Barbi Honeycutt, founder of FLIP It Consulting and an expert on the flipped classroom, provides strategies you can use to create a successful flipped learning experience for you and your students. Find out how to identify the reasons that some students resist the flipped classroom model and how you can address those challenges to increase the likelihood that they will come to class prepared.

You’ll learn how to structure preclass assignments so students are more likely to complete the work, and examine ways to support students as they discover what it takes to learn in the flipped classroom environment.

You’ll come away with strategies you can use to design and implement these new classroom activities, along with the ability to assess what and how well your students are learning.

Whether you’re a faculty member, faculty development professional, or teaching-center director—anyone who wants more insight into the flipped classroom model—this online seminar is just what you need.
