Flipped Learning Lesson Plan Instructor-Created Content Instructor: David Curtis Destination 2015 Course: Microbiology Concept/Title of Lesson: Flipped Lesson for Differential Stains in Microbiology Needs Assessment: In general, students have difficulty reading a technical lab manual, yet the information is needed to prepare them for lab, so it must be presented in a way to ensure comprehension of the concept. More specifically, when learning about the Gram staining technique, students need to both understand and demonstrate the process. Learning Outcome: At the end of this lesson, students will perform a successful Gram stain. Aligning the Flipped Lesson: Online Lesson & Formative Asst In Class Activity & Formative Asst Summative Assessment Online Lesson (Instructor-Created Content) & Formative Assessment: Students view an online narrated video tutorial on differential staining techniques showing them visually how to perform the procedures, specifically the Gram stain and its relation to the acid-fast staining technique. Within the online tutorial, students are asked to pause and answer questions on the concept. In Class Activity & Formative Assessment: Instructor reviews what students learned about differential stains, and students take a pre-lab quiz on the concept and process. Then, the in-class activity asks students to apply their knowledge of differential stains, specifically the Gram stain. Summative Assessment: Students will perform a Gram stain to test whether they have learned the process.
