Description

Flipped Learning as an educational model has emerged, globally, as a new pedagogical method geared towards educating today’s Generation Y students and the Generation Z students of the 2020s and beyond, supplanting a 900-yearold traditional university education system for a digital world where technology prevails in all aspects of our lives. Flipped Learning may have grabbed the attention of educationalists around the world; however, it has not yet gained a mainstream position. While many educators have adopted Flipped Learning for their courses, very few educational institutions have adapted this model as their sole approach. MEF University opened in 2014 as the first and only university globally to implement Flipped Learning across all programs, and to radically readdress how we assess students in higher education so that they are prepared for the workforce that they will enter upon graduation. After three years and three iterations of flipped learning, we believe we have created a best practice whereby careful choice of technology adoption, blended learning practices and student-led learning have combined to support our Flipped Learning educational approach. Through sharing the knowledge and experiences we have gained over the past three years, and sharing our innovative plans for future development, we aim to provide a working example of best practices for other institutions wishing to adopt this innovative, engaging and effective approach.
