How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"From reminding us of what to pack for a trip to helping doctors perform surgery, checklists are crucial for projects that require sequential steps or a series of tasks. As Atul Gawande points out in his book “Checklist Manifesto,” checklists break down complex tasks and also ensure consistency and efficiency if more than one person is working on a project."

This video not only provides an explantion of flipping and how to begin this process it also provides great resources (if you click on the Show More button under the description). There you will find links to four "great content curators" (these sites have content across many subject areas) as well as links to educational content creators (more focused on a specific area)  and a variety of websites that tend to post daily and you may want to subscribe to.
