One real challenge for first-time flippers is to get over the fact that they are NOT supposed to assign a lot of (or any) homework as follow-up exercise of the classroom learning.
A lectured class usually goes like this: lecture, homework after lecture, and then Q&A or quiz at the next class. A topic concludes at the next class, after students doing homework and the instructor handling the questions.
On the other hand, a flipped classroom follows the pattern: learning the material before class, and exercise and Q&A in class. The class meeting IS the follow-up and the conclusion of a topic.
Besides, if the instructor assigns a lot of work on the already covered material, how do students find time to prepare for the new material?
It took me several trials to overcome my mental block and to find a way to do this, but it's an important leap of faith one must take.
Take my Calculus 3 (Summer 19) for example. It's an accelerated 8-week class, but I only assign 10 to 15 basic questions per week as refreshners.
