Submit Questions for a New FLN Podcast


Podcasting. It’s here, it’s in, and the FLN is starting one up.

As the FLN continues to focus on community, we have a lot of outlets for engagement between Twitter, Facebookthe FLN Slack, and this blog. Starting soon, the FLN will be launching a new, informal podcast based on community questions. That means we need you to bring some questions in.

Why add a podcast?

I don’t know about you, but making a Twitter chat is difficult for me right now. A podcast, though, is something I can listen to at multiple points throughout my day: My commute, during lunch, or even a planning time. The intent is to provide multiple media for growth as a flipped educator and a podcast can be a substitute for some of the other engagement points that are already established. Additionally, a podcast can be asynchronous. There’s been a lot of writing on the value of asynchronicity in a flipped environment and allowing for an asynchronous engagement point makes sense for the FLN right now.

Get involved

There’s a new email address for you to submit questions to: Send an email with your question for discussion. Or, record an audio note and then email it. Or, even better, record a video on your phone and send that along. We’ll grab the audio and let community experts give their answers.

The idea is that with the community, there is a lot of wisdom and experience we can all benefit from. The podcasts will be short – just a few minutes – and focus on how to tackle some of the issues that come up in flipped classrooms, new and old.

A launch date with more information on how to subscribe is coming soon. In order to make this podcast happen, we need you to be involved. Send an email to Let us know what you want to hear more about.
