The “Flipped Classroom” model has grown in popularity over the last few years. At RIT in the 3D Digital Design department we teach a combination of design critical thinking and technical skills. In the past we struggled to find a balance between teaching the tools and also design and aesthetic concepts. We found a great amount of extra time was dedicated toward teaching the tools to the students. Initially many of the video promoted in the Flipped classroom are long, lecture length. In our department we have found that, the creation of modular videotaped technical lectures for offline viewing significantly leverages our and the students time by redirecting the delivery of quantified, finite technical information to self-paced, individual study. This model allows for more classroom time to address issues that require increased student interaction and participation. Additional benefits and techniques will be discussed for optimizing video production as well as combining social media elements to away from classroom discussion.
