Flipped vs. traditional teaching (sketchnote)

I’m always asked about the difference between flipped learning and a traditional teaching approach. What a perfect excuse to continue practicing my drawing skills and design a sketchnote! So here’s my latest sketchnote.

I made it with the intention to be used in a face-to-face setting (some day) and so that it can be explained by flipping the page. For digital use, I have uploaded each part separately as well.

Complete sketchnote:

Traditional class sketchnote

Flipped class sketchnote

Note: this sketchnote is created for free use. If you would like to use it, please contact me and I will share a good quality image or pdf with you. I’d also love to know if you find it useful. Comments are deeply appreciated!

    This is a GREAT visual. I would love a copy to use with my First Year (Freshmen) Writing course to help them get the concept better.

    We are beginning Blended learning and 1 of the focus strategies will be Flipped Learning. May I have a PDF of the infographic?

    I simply admire your work. I have attended so many courses looking for a fresh start to create amazing classes and finally I can connect to a total new concept( at least for me). The content that you have created has definitely impacted me and most important, it gave me the motivation to fight the frustration that constantly comes from traditional teaching. I want to express how thankful I am because you are taking the time to share your hard work with the world.
