Technology with Intention | Time-shifting instruction: flipped classroom and teaching | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

At its core, flipped teaching (also called flipped classroom, flipped instruction, vodcasting, educational video-on-demand) is a format for removing some of the lecture-based lessons from classrooms and giving students the ability to learn that content in their own time at their own pace. This is done through recording video-based lectures* [editor note: flipped philosophy has moved away from requiring video - see this article for more information. 4/25/2012] and posting them online for students to engage and respond to.
