Time-Shifted Teaching (aka Flipped Learning)

After umpteen conversations explaining the meaning of flipped learning to people, I decided to coin a term that does what it says on the tin. No prizes for rolling off the tongue but you’re welcome to suggest something slicker in the comments.

4 Thoughts on “Time-Shifted Teaching (aka Flipped Learning)

  1. But doesn’t this reduce “teaching” to “lecturing”? Isn’t “time-shifted lecturing” more accurate?

    • Yes sure, we may as well call it ‘time-shifted didactic transmission of knowledge’ but it doesn’t roll off the tongue so well.

      Aside from the negative associations of ‘lecturing’ and it being non-alliterative when connected to ‘time-shifted’ (both super important 🙂 ), lecturing doesn’t encompass some of the options of what teachers could be shifting. Any reason why an Act One stimulus couldn’t be used? Or something exploratory, à la Explore-Flip-Apply?

      I’m using ‘teaching’ as a catch-all term for the part of the lesson that the teacher controls, whatever shape that might take. I’ve moved on from time-shifted teaching as an instructional model (more on that another time) but when I was using it, I shifted the telling of a Lego Love Story to the night before. Hopefully it’s not the same as lecturing.

      I should probably run a series of these cartoons to encapsulate all this!

  2. Stanford calls it Teaching in the Digital Age.
