This workshop will cover fundamentals of flipped instruction for active learning, its potential benefits, and important considerations for teachers before implementing flipped instruction strategy in their classrooms. The main focus will be on essential elements of the TPACK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) framework, their interaction, and the framework's relevance to flipping classroom instruction. A major objective of this workshop is to familiarize the audience with freely available web tools and resources that can help in implementing the flipped instruction strategy. The presenters will cover the web tools and provide a hands-on demonstration of ways to integrate tools for flipped instruction in classroom teaching. The presenters have experience of implementing these web-based tools in instructional technology and engineering courses. Case studies highlighting implementation of flipped instruction in college-level courses will also be covered. The presenters will describe how attendees can collect and analyze data on the impact of flipped-classroom techniques on their students, including comparison with lecture-based courses and self-efficacy measurements.
