This article details my experience flipping a class last year. It will be published in the Fall by The Atlantic Law Journal.
This paper discusses the teaching and learning experience of flipping a business law and ethics class session in a hybrid format. While this experiment was done at the graduate level, the lessons are easily applicable to and adaptable for use at the undergraduate level. Part I discusses the online video content; the coordination of university technology personnel to create the video; the software platform to capture material and password protect it; and the intellectual property issues relating to that content. Part II provides a description of each team module, the tasks that students completed outside of class for the modules, and specific instructions on team presentations in class. These real world business scenarios provided an integrative approach for teaching law and ethics: (1) Breach of Contract Module; (2) Products Liability Module; and (3) Discovery Ethics and Attorney-Client Privilege Module. Finally, Part III of this paper details what the author learned through the flipped classroom process, and what he would do the same or differently for the next time he flips a class session.
