Throughout the past year, our posts on flipping the classroom have proven to be among the most-read articles on the Cengage Learning Blog. In her post “To Flip or Not to Flip: That is the Question,” Cengage Learning author Beverly Amer notes that “The approach ‘flips’ the class model so the focus is less on instructor control of information, and more on empowering learners to gather on their own and bring the knowledge to bear on solving a problem or contributing to a work group.” The model is designed to increase student engagement and put more of the onus—and opportunity—for learning and discovery into their hands.
