Flipped Through Design

How can Instructional Design build a “Flipped Classroom?”

“The ADDIE model of design provides a solid foundation for the development of courses and for all design projects. Many times in education, new technology and theories are incorporated into courses because they are “the next big thing” or for a “wow” factor; however, this practice should be avoided.

Unless the new developments and technology can be integrated seamlessly into the instruction, they can actually deter from the learning experience. This same short-coming can happen with the “Flipped Classroom” This is where Instructional Design and design models like ADDIE can be used to determine if “flipping” is right for a particular course and if so, what steps should be taken to reach this reality. Image 3.1 below offers a set of questions to guide this process.
