You made it! So, here’s more background on our flipped classroom:
We’ve completely revamped the way we’re providing information literacy instruction at our academic library, and our new offerings utilized a flipped classroom structure. Our old model was providing one-session instruction for any course or instructor who happened to request it. Our new model relies on the library’s involvement with the university’s newly implemented general education program. Information literacy instruction is provided by the library to all the 200 level writing/speaking classes. Each section is scheduled for a week of library visits (TTh or MWF), and completes pre-session homework (interactive online tutorials we’ve created) before each session. Then we spend our classroom time on clarification and application of the concepts from the tutorials, group work, and research coaching for individual students as they all spend time researching for their own project. Delivering the comprehensive, standardized curriculum we’ve developed through an LMS (Blackboard) enables us to assess all the students who participate for the university’s Information and Technology Literacy Student Learning Outcome.
And here’s a snippet of one of our tutorials:
