Abstract

Fostering student engagement in class is often chief among a professor’s goals. For this reason, many professors choose to “flip” their classroom in order to deliver content outside of class and spend more time on exercises and examples in class. When students do not engage with content outside of class, however, the benefits of the flipped classroom diminish. By pairing the flipped classroom with team-based learning, a learning technique that adds a student-completed “readiness assurance” assessment to the flipped classroom model, students are increasingly prepared for class and are more engaged with the material in class. This article discusses how professors can integrate team-based learning with a flipped classroom, the complementary nature of both approaches, and what type of modules and topics may be appropriate.
