Using a flipped classroom to embed information literacy skills training into academic studies

In January 2017, King’s College London ran a module entitled ‘Contemporary Issues in Neuroscience’ for the first time as part of its BSc Psychology degree. The module, open to second year students, offered a departure in approach from the previous modules. The use of the flipped classroom was employed because the nature of the content meant that the module did not require students to learn vast quantities of neurobiology but rather critique emerging applications of the discipline by engaging with traditional academic sources and more general sources. Eleanor Dommett is a Senior Lecturer and the e-learning tutor for the BSc Psychology programme. She is the module convenor for a number of modules, including the core first year module Psychology and the Brain and a second year optional neuroscience module. Her primary research interest is in distractibility and its basis in the brain.
