There’s no question that the flipped classroom model has become all the rage at colleges and universities across the country. In fact, in the most recent Horizon Report, the New Media Consortium (NMC) called the flipped classroom one of the most important emerging trends in educational technology for higher education, noting, “The model is becoming increasingly popular in higher education institutions because of how it rearranges face-to-face instruction for professors and students, creating a more efficient and enriching use of class time.” Yet with all the flipped classroom’s potential for active, collaborative learning and increased interaction between professors and students, there’s still one bastion of higher education that has resisted the trend: the large lecture course. Columbia University is experimenting with the flipped classroom model in large lecture courses.
