Our Virtual PAC member, Scott Rose, commented on The Flipped Classroom:
"Thanks for bringing this to our attention. There is a whole lot of interest in this approach at the post-secondary level, at least in the US. Part of the thinking is that since a lecture is largely a one-way communication-- particularly in this era of auditorium-sized classrooms-- you lose little and gain much by delivering recorded lectures prepared by the very best lecturers and preserving the local instructor resources for 1:1 interactions. Institutions like Stanford and MIT are putting Computer Science lectures by their best people up for free. Not sure how much spread there has been to other disciplines."
