The Advances in Educational Technologies & Instructional Design (AETID) Book Series is a resource where researchers, students, administrators, and educators alike can find the most updated research and theories regarding technology’s integration within education and its effect on teaching as a practice.

Introduction
The flipped classroom is a pedagogical practice that has garnered a significant following in recent years. The premise of a flipped classroom is that lecture and traditional content preparation is done at home (such as via videos on an LMS) and the classroom time is used for students to engage with the content and complete activities. Therefore, the traditional concept of the classroom is "flipped," meaning lectures are listened to or watched at home and "homework" is done in the classroom. The flipped classroom has demonstrated positive increases in student engagement and interaction, as well as positive outcomes in subject matter expertise.

Objective of the Book
The mission of this text is to provide a necessary resource in the flipped classroom for individuals who are interested in pursuing this pedagogical endeavor but have not participated in a flipped classroom themselves. Therefore, this text will provide foundational materials as well as narrative explanations of successful aspects of a flipped classroom from experienced instructors.

Target Audience
The target audience for this text will be educators across disciplines and levels, as well as educational administrators.

Recommended Topics
Recommended topics are any in-depth analysis or assessment of the flipped classroom experience, regardless of level or discipline. This text is not looking for chapters introducing the concept of a flipped classroom. Topic ideas:
• Successful assignments used with the flipped classroom
• Successful teaching methodologies with the flipped classroom
• Assessing students’ expectations and experiences with the flipped classroom
• Challenges of implementation
• Challenges of maintaining or articulating positive results to those outside of the classroom
