Flip-Talks is an educational resource for enhancing graduate level medical education utilizing the principles of a “Flipped classroom”. The purpose of Flip-Talks is to change the lecturer’s interaction with the audience by providing a more personalized classroom dialog that relies less on a generalized didactic approach to the material. The current focus is to provide a web-based medical case-study resource for students to review and provide feedback to specific questions prior to an instructional lecture. The review of material by students prior to a formal lecture we believe creates greater discussion during a lecturer’s presentation and allows the lecturer to identify areas of proficiency as well as topics that need special attention during the discussion. By flipping the class room in medical education, students are more engaged and challenged to participate during instructor lead seminars allowing a more enriching learning experience.
Flip-Talks is a free service focused on allowing educators to create a “Flipped Classroom” for medical education.
