A flurry of novel teaching methodologies have been presented at prior AABB annual meetings. The flipped classroom model of teaching fosters face-to-face interaction between instructor and learner. As educators, we recognize that the prospect of implementing novel teaching strategies can be intimidating. In this session, the theory behind flipped classrooms and the use of flipped classrooms in health professions education will be reviewed. Participants will then work through two transfusion medicine cases in a flipped classroom simulation to demonstrate how to execute this type of interactive session. Participants will leave this session with two ready-made cases that can be implemented in a flipped classroom session at their home institution for residents or laboratory scientists.
Describe the flipped classroom model of teaching and learning and its use in health professions education.
Compare and contrast requirements of a teacher in a flipped classroom versus a traditional lecture.
Supervise flipped classroom sessions about immunohematology and transfusion reactions.
