Flipping Out! Tips, tricks, and a roadmap for flipping a law school classroom or selling someone on the idea


An increasing number of law faculty are flipping their classrooms and many more are interested in the approach. The technical and organizational aspects of flipping may deter some from trying, but with the right planning and resources a first foray into flipping doesn’t have to be intimidating. Based on the successful adoption of flipped classrooms at two law schools, this session will provide a roadmap for how to successfully flip a class and address many frequently asked questions and concerns raised by both instructors interested in flipping and the technology gurus assisting them. Topics include: some considerations when choosing which classes to flip; best practices for preparing well-received online presentations and in-class activities; selecting software and hardware before recording; tips for creating good recordings without investing endless hours; selecting your best option for distributing the content to students; what to expect from in-class activities; evaluating the flip; and how to talk to faculty about flipping. The session is designed for anyone who teaches or assists with instructional technologies. Its focus is preparing audience members to flip and will not be an account of the presenters’ experiences at their schools.
