Flipped Learner-Centred Interactive Classroom Strategies (FLICS) provides a framework to create deep learning experiences for students using active learning strategies. Flipped learning flips the traditional homework vs. class time paradigm (Gerstein, 2012; Strayer, 2011). Lectures along with other resources and activities are moved online to focus class time on activities that allow instructors and students to work together with the course material (Bergmann & Sams, 2012). As flipping the entire classroom or course can be a daunting task it has been suggested that starting small with microflips (Buemi, 2014) should alleviate the anxiety of flipping an entire course. In such, FLICS was developed to facilitate the step-by-step process of supporting instructors to create a flipped learning environment. By starting small, instructors are able to focus on creating a positive, adaptable meaningful learning experience for both instructor and students. Current flipped frameworks (Gerstein, 2012; Strayer, 2011) provide a high-level conceptual overview of how a flipped classroom works. The FLICS model, however, provides a visual step-by-step guide to flipped learning by integrating and sequencing online and classroom activities while highlighting the role of both instructor and student in the learning process. This interactive session will provide an opportunity for participants to collaborate with peers, share ideas, and develop practical skills to flip their own classroom by providing participants the opportunity to:

1. Conceptualize how to incorporate a flipped approach into their educational practice
2. Discuss the instructor and student roles in flipped learning
3. Create their own flipped lesson using FLICS
