Each Flipped Learning Module (FLM) is a set of short videos and online activities that can be used (in whole or in part) to free up class time from content delivery for greater student interaction. At the end of the module, students are asked to fill out a brief survey, in which we adopt the minute paper strategy. In this approach, students are asked to submit their response to two brief questions regarding their knowledge of the module.

In this FLM, students are asked to watch three videos, covering the topics of evaluating initial research questions, entering a research conversation, and creating conversations through research.

Key Terms

scholarly conversation, research questions, search scope and results, argument, exhibit, annotated bibliography, strategies
