Abstract or Summary

This presentation will outline our students’ experience of the use of flipped or online lecture delivery to novice first year nursing students. Following on from literature and conference presentations around the use of this teaching method, we have used this approach to facilitate learning of foundational information in lifespan development for nurses. The idea of flipped learning has been storied, not as an experimental deviation to teaching, but as an established alternative way of learning that meets with our institution’s teaching and learning directions of being flexible and adaptable (Marshall, 2013). Students are supported in an active, student-centred manner to apply, describe, discuss and demonstrate the learning from the flipped classroom. The aim being to confidently instil in students the value of flipped classrooms from day one so that students are able to transition from traditional classroom delivery. As evidenced by student feedback reactions, flipped classrooms challenged students to be self-disciplined, take responsibility for their learning, and to develop study habits essential at tertiary level.
