Flipped Learning Workshop

SWIC Red Bud Campus 500 W S 4th St, Red Bud

The flipped classroom is a pedagogical model where the traditional lecture and homework elements are reversed. Pre-recorded video lectures are viewed before class. In-class time is repurposed so students can inquire about lecture content, apply their knowledge, and participate in hands-on activities. By reversing the traditional lecture and homework elements and integrating engaged-learning activities, educators can transition their class from a teacher-centered to a learner-centered environment. Making this transition will completely change the dynamics of the classroom and make students more responsible for their own learning. Student engagement, participation, and understanding increase too! Come discover the possibilities offered by the flipped classroom model as we explore the technology that will make implementation in your classroom a breeze.
