Missouri State University (MSU) has implemented a flipped classroom model for its Introductory Psychology course, resulting in dramatic improvements in student learning outcomes and course completion rates. The faculty members in the MSU psychology department developed the redesign plan. “We did a lot of reading of the literature and we knew pedagogically we wanted to break this course down and start over,” said Danae Hudson, associate professor of psychology. That reading led them to select a flipped classroom model. “We really wanted that kind of model for our class, where we basically had to force the students to be engaged with the material because prior to this they weren’t,” she said.
