WHAT IS A “FLIPPED CLASSROOM”?
A “flipped classroom” is one in which the lecture typically given in class is watched at home, and the time normally spent doing homework occurs live in class. In other words, you watch the recorded lecture on your own, followed by answering questions. You then interact with the teacher and other students online going over the lesson, followed by previewing the next lesson.
How this looks will differ somewhat by subject. For Economics, this means an Oxford style “recitation,” or small group discussion once per week. Since this is an online school, these meetings happen live via video conference.
