Promising Practices Brief: Flipping the Classroom Austin Community College’s Blended, Interactive Approach to Strengthening Student Progression

This Promising Practices brief is one of a series of reports jointly published by the Aspen Institute Workforce Strategies Initiative (AspenWSI) and Achieving the Dream based on cases from a U.S. Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant consortium. Led by Northern Virginia Community College, the consortium includes seven colleges.

This report describes how Austin Community College (ACC) focused on teaching and learning by flipping the classroom to strengthen student progression into health science programs of study. AspenWSI and Achieving the Dream chose the topics of these reports based on our observations as managers of the consortium’s peer learning community. Earlier versions of the reports, based on interviews, data, and document reviews at each site, were used as learning cases to benefit grant project leaders and staff within the consortium. Aspen WSI and Achieving the Dream are publishing the revised reports as examples of the innovative capacity development initiatives that better serve more students as a result of a major, multiyear investment.
