Nurse educators are constantly looking for innovative teaching strategies to meet students' needs and to improve learning outcomes. Increasingly, educators are turning to a flipped classroom strategy where students receive lecture content prior to class and work through applications and activities during class time. Why this change? Research is showing that it can promote active learning and participation in the classroom with the assistance of fellow students and the instructor. That's why we just published Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Active Learning Meets Technology by Karen Hessler, an innovative text that focuses on the flipped learning model in the framework of nursing education.
