Course Description

Create a Collaborative Learning Environment by Turning Traditional Learning on Its Head

The flipped classroom concept takes traditional teaching and learning and reverses the delivery of instruction to the home with the use of technology and moves “homework” to the classroom. This allows teachers to spend more one-on-one time with each student. During class time, students can ask questions and work through problems with the guidance of their teachers and the support of fellow students. Review the research behind the flipped model of learning, participate in activities to clarify thinking and understanding of student-centered learning and explore the tools needed to implement this process in your educational environment.

This course can be taken individually and as part of either the Flipping Classroom Instruction Series or the Learning and Teaching in a K-12 Digital Classroom Series.
