The aim of this project was to explore the use of the flipped classroom for second year undergraduate adult nursing students. The flipped classroom promotes active learning, student engagement and student achievement. During the project, four theory lectures on assessment skills were replaced by interactive ‘Learning Packs’ using an online platform, which contained written information and video and audio files to work through, covering the same content as the traditional lectures. The students were then expected to complete a workbook to bring to the practical sessions, where they applied the information to skills stations and scenarios. Student feedback was overwhelmingly positive. The flexibility of the Learning Packs and the ability to work at one’s own pace were valued by the students. Lecturer feedback from the practical sessions showed that students were adequately prepared and had a good level of theoretical knowledge after completion of the Learning Packs.

Delegates will be shown practical strategies to implement the flipped classroom, as well as a summary of the challenges and benefits of this approach.
