Implementing the Flipped, Socially Distanced, Live-Streamed Classroom
Dawn McKell

A Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis of a university identified the need to offer more online and hybrid courses without increasing faculty positions, more community partnerships, the ability to live-stream classrooms, and the institution of flipped classrooms as a best practice. Three forms of the university's course content delivery exist, traditional face-to-face, online, and hybrid. This paper presents a fourth alternative that allows students to participate in three delivery forms in the same course and provides additional accessibility to potential students with limitations. Included is a redesign of the classroom, incorporating the "flipped classroom" with an example of the budget. An additional need addressed is the social distancing now in practice and the space resources needed to satisfy the classroom's social distancing requirements. Finally, the flipped, live-streamed classroom can be leveraged as a resource to reach and become engaged with external stakeholders to include businesses and communities.
