Flippin’ education: a new pedagogy for paramedic students?

Peter Phillips
Saturday, July 2, 2016

This article presents a case study in which the author piloted the flipped classroom on a cohort of paramedic science students at a UK higher education institution. The flipped classroom will be explained alongside the rationale for considering it as a good pedagogical addition for paramedic students. As a new pedagogy, the flipped classroom will be considered against what is currently known about learning theories and teaching styles. There are potential drawbacks to this method of teaching and learning and these will be discussed, as will suggestions to mitigate these drawbacks. Finally, the impact upon the students will be considered and the author will comment on the pilot and what this means for paramedic education in the future.
