Where Flipped Learning Research Is Going - David Raths, Campus Technology

While most agree that the flipped classroom model benefits learning, researchers are delving into the details and exploring the many facets of a flip. In general, research has shown that the flipped classroom model has a positive impact on student outcomes. Last year, a University of Washington "meta-analysis" of 225 studies compared student performance in undergraduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses under traditional lecturing vs. active learning: "The results indicate that average examination scores improved by about 6 percent in active learning sections, and that students in classes with traditional lecturing were 1.5 times more likely to fail than were students in classes with active learning," the study noted in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. http://campustechnology.com/articles/2015/04/15/where-flipped-learning-research-is-going.aspx
