Flipped Learning in the Workplace
Nederveld, Allison; Berge, Zane L.
Journal of Workplace Learning, v27 n2 p162-172 2015
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to serve as a summary of resources on flipped learning for workplace learning professionals. A recent buzzword in the training world is "flipped". Flipped learning and the flipped classroom are hot topics that have emerged in K-12 education, made their way to the university and are now being noticed by the corporate world. Unfortunately many learning professionals have misconceptions about what it really means to flip a learning experience, and little literature exists to support implementation of flipped learning in the workplace. Design/methodology/approach: The methodology adopted in this article is a literature review. Findings: The paper presents several tools for moving lecture outside of the classroom and for making class time more student-centered through active learning techniques. Practical implications: This paper discusses the benefits and challenges of a flipped learning approach, both in general and specifically in the workplace. Additionally, the paper explores several case studies of flipped learning use in the workplace. Originality/value: The paper is a literature review that explores the definition of flipped learning as a learner-centered approach to education and looks at two models of flipped learning with applicability to workplace settings.
