The DigiComPass project team is pleased to present the Flipped Instructional Design (FID) guide, a comprehensive resource for educators seeking to implement this innovative teaching approach.
Flipped Instructional Design Guide: A Transformative Approach to Learning
The FID guide is rooted in the Flipped Learning 3.0 Framework, which emphasizes a student-centered approach to learning. This design strategically inverts traditional teaching methods by delivering instructional content outside of the classroom, primarily through digital means, allowing students to engage with materials at their own pace. Consequently, classroom time, once dominated by lectures, is now repurposed for interactive, hands-on activities that foster deeper comprehension and application of knowledge.
In the FID model, educators transition from being mere content deliverers to active facilitators, guiding students in collaborative and individualized learning experiences. Continuous assessment and a flexible learning environment further enhance the efficacy of this approach, ensuring that education is tailored to individual needs while promoting active engagement and more profound understanding.
