Flipping Your Rotation (Part 1 of 2): The Fundamentals

In the health care field, learners are expected to complete experiential training (often called rotations or clerkships) to develop clinical skills. However, encouraging learners to apply concepts learned in the classroom often requires a lot of dedicated teaching. As a preceptor, do you find it challenging to make time to teach students because of your other obligations? In this two-part series, we’ll cover strategies to help you engage students on rotation while maximizing time for other activities using the flipped classroom model. In Part 1, we’ll describe the fundamentals of the flipped classroom and explain its benefits and challenges. In Part 2, we’ll cover how the flipped classroom can be applied to experiential learning.
