TOPICS Entertainment (, sponsor of—a Blog for Language Educators—is pleased to announce the second installment in a two-part series: The Tossed Language Instruction Salad of Flipped Learning.

The series examines the exclusive use of video lectures for the self-directed learning component of Flipped Learning and whether or not they can consistently engage all students or some students at all. It also questions why other forms of multimedia instruction are rarely discussed, and if, in conjunction with video lectures, they could provide variety and better engage students. The post also suggests and provides online alternatives for explorative learning to be used with video lectures.
