Inverting Instruction in Literacy Methods Courses: Making Learning More Active and Personalized
Zawilinski, Lisa M.; Richard, Kimberly A.; Henry, Laurie A.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v59 n6 p695-708 May-Jun 2016
Three teacher educators who inverted/flipped instruction in their literacy courses describe their experience in this article. Inverted, or flipped, instruction is a blended learning approach that increases opportunities for active engagement in class by moving basic instructor demonstration and presentation outside of class. The authors provide a rationale for inverting instruction and include relevant research that supports it. They also include a sample literacy module before and after inverting it. In addition, both student and instructor benefits to and challenges of inverted instruction are shared. Inverted instruction seemed to allow students to personalize their learning outside of class and affords them greater opportunities to apply and synthesize information during class.
