The delivery of educational content can take a variety of forms, depending on the dynamics of a particular classroom. With flipped classroom environments, students can better engage and retain concepts and information.

Extending the Principles of Flipped Learning to Achieve Measurable Results: Emerging Research and Opportunities shows through detailed case studies how to measure flipped learning results in order to implement Deming’s P-D-S-A cycle for achieving continual improvement in the flipped classroom. The book is built upon Dr. Michael G. Moore’s theory of Transactional Distance. It highlights pedagogical coverage on topics such as individual and group interactive learning, learning spaces, learning materials, and instructor and student preparation. This book is an ideal reference source for educators, professionals, graduate students, researchers, and academics seeking information on the latest instructional strategies.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Designing Flipped Learning
  • Flipped Learning as Student Leadership Development
  • Generating Transactional Distances
  • Measuring Flipped Learning Results
  • P-D-S-A Cycle and the Continual Improvement of Flipped Learning
  • P-D-S-A Cycle: Execution of the PLAN, DO, STUDY, and ACT steps
  • P-D-S-A Cycle: Going beyond the initial P-D-S-A Cycle

Reviews and Testimonials

This book cuts through the fog and mystique of flipped learning by offering both fundamental research behind successful application as well as practical guidance on how to design, develop, implement, and evaluate effective practice.

– Dr. Roger Kaufman, Florida State University-Emeritus

I have enjoyed reading this book and I have also learned a lot. I am confident, that this excellent, well written, practical book is a very valuable and timely contribution to most students, academics, and academic management too, who are keen to assure, that students will be more satisfied with their learning processes. Faculty will also be happier because they’ll experience more satisfied students who are also more engaged, and administrators will meet students who are less likely to drop their classes. As Dr. Swart points out though, this journey does not guarantee success, but it does constitute the best attempt at flipped learning. As with other things in live, students, as well as educators, should make this on-demand, feedback controlled educational concept their own to succeed. This book certainly encourages them to work in teams, collaborate and succeed together.
