In this episode Ken chats with Alex More. Kelly Walsh brought the work of Alex to my attention and recommended interviewing him for the podcast. This was a great conversation and I must thank Kelly for the recommendation.

Support the Show and the FLN
The Flipped Learning Network is a not-for-profit organization and runs on a small budget. Our costs are indeed low (web hosting, some legal and financial fees and paying for the support of a wonder community manager Kelly Walsh) and we are run by volunteers. If you would like to support the FLN, please contact us via any of the following options:
- We have a Patreon Page where you can become a monthly patron for as low as USD$1 per month.
- If you would like to make a one time donation, that is always an option via cheque sent to our offices or a donation via PayPal. Just ask us.
- If you make purchases at Amazon, you can follow our affiliate link to make any purchases on their site. This costs you nothing but a small percentage of your purchase goes to us at the Flipped Learning Network. This is for the USA based store but it may be possible to arrange setting up “shop” on other Amazon worldwide sites.
- If you are interested in the “Flipped Learning Certified Level-1” (in English or Spanish) certifications from the Flipped Learning Global Initiative, please follow our affiliate link to sign up.
- See our “How to Support the FLN” page for more details including a link to our Sponsorship page where you can be listed as a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum sponsor.
- Our main contact page on the website.
I’ve been personally negligent in not pursuing an option to improve accessibility with transcripts of the show. I see the work that Bonni Stachowiak has done with her “Teaching in Higher Ed” podcast as well as the work of Deepak Shenoy on his podcast “Open Education Rising”. The trick here is cost and I don’t know the solution just yet. Producing about 90 minutes of podcasts per month would require about USD$100 per month. We would love to have a sponsor for that or perhaps link that as one of our goals on our Patreon Page.
Podcasters and Guests
We now have a stable crew of two podcast hosts on the network. I (Ken Bauer) will be hosting the bulk of the AskTheFLN episodes but we may have some other hosts popping in from time to time. Lately, Matthew Moore has been busy with his own podcast “The Teachers Lounge” which is also hosted here at the Flipped Learning Network. You should check out that podcast as well. I hope to personally keep a bi-weekly schedule going forward.
If you would like to join us as a guest on the podcast or would like to suggest someone to be a guest, please contact either Matthew or myself via Twitter.
I would also like to remind everyone that anyone contributing to the community that is the Flipped Learning Network actually *is* part of the Flipped Learning Network. We are a community and grow together by pooling our resources. See how you can contribute to this community through contributing blog posts, joining us on this podcast as well as participating in our Slack community.
My choice of quote from the conversation that particularly resonated with me.
On taking the students’ point of view of Flipped Learning in his research:
“And look at it from the student’s point of view. There is a lot of research (quantitative and qualitative) from the teacher’s perspectives and educators and higher education. But what there seems to be a lack of at the time of writing, what do the students think of flipped learning and what do they feel about the process, how much ownership do they feel over it?”
