Flipping lessons by augmenting preparatory resources with video content can be helpful to students if they are willing and able to engage with the new resources. The strategy of fortifying lessons by bringing elements of these video resources into class to support discussions and activities can improve the effect. In this workshop, I will share some strategies for flipping and fortifying lessons with video content that we have curated and/or created. Participants will be invited to share their experiences in flipping and fortifying and their strategies for encouraging useful student engagement and interaction.
