This mixed-method, collaborative action research project involves graduate students and the professor working together to refine a flipped course model incorporating web-based platforms for dialog and communication. Graduate students collaborated with the professor to refine the delivery of the course through iterative cycles of action research. Collegial collaboration presents a model of empowerment and professionalism to pre-service and in-service teachers, and encourages students to use similar methodologies in preK-12 settings. Data analysis is underway. Initial results suggest that students felt empowered and engaged in critical thinking and the development of professional skills in instructional technology, collaboration, and communication.
