A Massively Flipped Class-Designing and implementing active learning information literacy instruction for a large enrollment course
Purpose This paper describes and analyzes how one-shot library instruction sessions for large lecture classes can effectively be “flipped” and can incorporate active learning activities as part of both the online and the face-to-face classroom. Design/methodology/approach This case study discusses the challenges of employing flipped classroom methods with large enrollment courses and investigates the use of technology to facilitate the active learning components. Situated in flipped classroom pedagogy literature for both information literacy instruction and large lecture classes, the paper synthesizes practical information through the analysis of design and implementation. Findings Lecture classes present unique challenges for utilizing flipped classroom methods but the obstacles can be overcome with a bit of preparation and faculty buy-in, balanced with the proper utilization of technology. Originality/vale The paper offers other librarians practical design and implementation information for using flipped classroom methods, specifically for classes with large enrollments, filling a gap in the library literature that presently lacks examples of flipped classroom pedagogy being utilized for information literacy instruction with lecture classes.
