Much has been made of the flipped classroom as an approach to teaching, and its effect on student learning. There are many ways of “flipping the classroom”. The particular realization of the flipped classroom that we discuss is based on a method called “Just in Time Teaching (JiTT)”. JiTT includes assigning short, web-based questions constructed to elicit common misunderstandings from the students. The instructor uses student answers to correct any misunderstandings immediately in the next class period, hence the name, “Just in Time Teaching”. The addition of these pre-class questions is what separates JiTT from a general flipped classroom model. This talk discusses aids to help the instructor begin using the JiTT flipped classroom model in statistics courses.
