This presentation discusses a flipped classroom approach to a learning strategies course to promote academic success in an online environment. The design creates equitable opportunities catering to diverse learners.

Learning Strategies for Preclinical students is a compulsory 1-credit course for pre-matriculating medical and veterinary students at St. Georgea's University. In addition to a range of age groups, students are scattered across the globe with varied life and educational experiences. The course is structured as experiential and critically reflective to promote the development of self-regulated learning, in preparation for the rigor of medical school. The material is presented in online modules, synchronous classes, post-class reflections, and assignments. Course learning objectives are aligned to the domains of the Learning and Study Skills Inventory (LASSI).

Rooted in research on blended and self-regulated learning, we have reconceptualized this learning strategies course to be relevant by integrating strategies into students™ science curriculum. The course components were designed to promote engagement, enhancement, and extension in the online environment.
Participants will:
1. Examine factors to consider when designing an online learning strategies course for diverse learners.
2. Conceptualize ways in which aspects of this design can be applied to participants own contexts.
