Top 10 Must-Read Research Papers in August

Heading Back to mastery / Higher Ed August 19 / Special / August 17, 2019

— Jon Bergmann —

Two main themes emerged from the 65 articles and research papers I reviewed this month. The first being increasing numbers of reviews of Flipped Learning research (#7 & 8). The meta-reviews are showing what we have seen over and over again in this top 10 list — simply that Flipped Learning works. I even wonder when they cite studies that show no growth if those practitioners have been following the Flipped Learning best practices.

Another theme I saw that was quite new this month was a prevalence of asking how students need to be prepared for Flipped Learning (#3, 4 & 9). Assuming students will jump in and be successful is unrealistic. I was particularly impressed with number 9 which created a Flipped Learning Readiness Tool for students.

The other notable study that caught my eye was number 5 where the researchers had students create flipped videos for each other.
