The Flipping Project aims to support academic staff at the University of Bath to implement effectively an innovative approach to curriculum design and delivery .


The project objectives are to:
  • Work with a small number (up to 6) units per year to introduce an innovative approach to curriculum design and delivery ('flipped' lectures);
  • Provide support and development opportunities to academic staff within a context relevant to their needs;
  • Work with students to explore the relevance to and impact on learners of the implementation of innovative teaching methods;
  • Develop guidance and resources (based on the project experience, research and practice evidence from Bath and peer institutions) tailored to the needs and context of academic staff and students at Bath.

The project, managed through the LTEO, will work collaboratively with colleagues, departments and other professional services across the University. As well as supporting the participants to benefit from peer learning with each other, the LTEO (through the Academic Staff Development and e-Learning teams) will also provide 1-2-1 advice and guidance and appropriate development opportunities (e.g. on the use of appropriate technologies, evaluating the effectiveness of teaching etc.). These latter opportunities will be made open to all staff who teach or support learning at the University to enable others to benefit from the project.

Approval for this project was granted by the University of Bath's Learning, Teaching and Quality Committee at its meeting of 10 July 2012.
