Flipped classrooms are more of a strategy than a specific collection of technologies and room configurations. As long as
students have the ability to access lecture materials and other online elements in their non-class time, a professor can flip the course. However, there are two components to room setup that tend to work better than others:
- Teacher as student: Michael Garver at Central Michigan University only goes behind a room’s podium to advance a slide. He prefers to walk around the classroom, especially during competitions, so that he can facilitate team discussions more easily.
- Pods and circles: Garver also favors putting students into groups within the classroom, which might mean pulling chairs together in different areas of a room for team interactions, and then having students come back to a large circle to deliver their results.
