    Please welcome our guest blogger, Dr. Karen Hessler, PhD, FNP-C, author of Flipping the Nursing Classroom: Where Interactive Learning Meets Technology, for a post on the highs and lows of flipped classrooms.

    Summer is such a great time to take a few minutes to reflect on our teaching practices in the classroom and clinical settings.

As I watched the fireworks display on the 4th of July with my family this year, it made me think of a parallel to my flipped classroom experiences.

    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.
