The flipped classroom is quickly becoming commonplace at schools and universities across the world, with a rapidly increasing number of instructors making the flip. It’s a teaching methodology that’s grown so quickly that a 2015 report by the NMC calls flipped teaching one of the most important developments in educational technology for higher education.
As the popularity of flipped (or inverted) teaching grows, so does the amount of interest into its effectiveness. Recently, we were turned on to the below infographic detailing the results from a survey of over 450 flipped educators. The infographic offers an eye-opening peek into the impact that flipped classrooms are having on both teachers and students:
Based on the results of the survey, 67% of instructors found that their students’ test scores improved under the flipped classroom, and 80% reported an improvement in student attitudes.
However, the most intriguing statistic from the study is its impact on the teachers making the flip. A staggering 88% of flipped instructors reported that their job satisfaction improved after flipping their classes. Of those, 46% said that their job satisfaction was significantly improved — and nearly all of the respondents stated that they would flip their classrooms again next year.
