Flipping the classroom

So, I am about to write a paper on the Flipped Classroom with a colleague and I need a place to list some sources so that I don’t forget them; I’ve chosen here. Maybe I’ll be a little more discerning later once I know more about what I’m doing, but until then here’s a run-down of what I’ve looked at so far:

1. This contains a really useful quote about leaner-centred educators, which is what flipping the classroom is all about. https://21centuryedtech.wordpress.com/2012/07/18/flipping-the-classroom-a-goldmine-of-research-and-resources-to-keep-you-on-your-feet/

2. This is a really useful physics paper about the effect if flipping the classroom using a control group (the ethics of this are interesting). On Google Scholar this has been cited 314 times, so I’m guessing this is an important piece of work to consider. I should probably also look at the 314 that cite it, but thankfully I am not undertaking a review of every single piece of literature, so we’re all good!  http://www.sciencemag.org/content/332/6031/862.short

3. The Flipped Learning Network has a section on research, reports and studies, including some big review papers of 40+ pages… http://www.flippedlearning.org/domain/41

4. This is an article about a chap who teaches Biology in the USA from the Seattle Times. http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/washington-college-instructors-are-flipping-the-way-they-teach/

5. Tom Driscoll, whose 2012 thesis was on flipped learning, has a blog site that pulls together all sorts of useful stuff http://www.flipped-history.com/p/flipped-learning.html

6. Tom’s graduate thesis is here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0VIwE5hKSWta0RqbmdZSGh0WTQ/edit?pli=1
