    Happy Flipping New Year!

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Dec 31, 2016 12:24:42 PM

    Welcome back guest blogger, Dr. Karen Hessler, PhD, FNP-C, author of Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Interactive Learning Meets Technology.

    The last blog of 2016 has arrived after a busy fall in Colorado. Flipping my class this past semester was a fantastic success, and prompts me to encourage all of you to keep up the great work to perfect your flipped pedagogy. My teaching is more meaningful and my evaluations are a nice reflection of student appreciation for my efforts to bring to the classroom a new and innovative teaching style. Although much of the research discusses student resistance to the flipped classroom (including my own!) I will have to say that once students experience the flipped classroom as it is meant to be delivered, they are extremely appreciative of its implementation. Students realize how much they’ve learned, and how much more they’ve learned within the flipped classroom than in the traditional lecture-based teaching structure they experience in other classes. In particular, my students appreciate the application of content that the flipped classroom allows.

    Happy Fall to everyone! I trust that nursing classrooms across the country and around the world are all abuzz with students and faculty working together to teach and learn the concepts and pearls of wisdom necessary to develop the next generation of nurses. As I think about the flipped classroom at its best and brightest, I wonder if we are considering the spacial aspect of our classrooms carefully enough.
