Flipped Classroom: Total Classroom MakeoverOpen Learning
What you'll learn on the course
Flipped learning or flipped classroom, is a new buzzword in the world of education. What is it? It is simply changing the typical 'sage on the stage' approach of the traditional classroom to a more student-centered, more engaging learning inside and outside the classroom.
Flipped classroom is based on the notion of ‘less is more’; it is a pedagogical approach in which the focus is shifted from the traditional direct teaching and providing content but rather to focus more on engaging the students with the content. Leveraging on the internet, the content of the course can now be provided typically on an online learning platform and the students are expected to study the materials prior coming to the classroom. The classroom can now be transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the teacher facilitates and guides students as they explore/apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter.
Flipped classroom is designed to empower students to become self-directed learners, allowing them to construct their own learning and create their own meaning. Designed and executed properly, Flipped classroom could be the key to a total classroom makeover.
This short course will demonstrate my own approach to flipping the classroom, changing the way we teach and the way students learn. It is designed to help educators to design and deliver the flipped classroom effectively.
“For me, THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM HAS BEEN PROFOUND. It’s really has CHANGED THE WAY I APPROACH TEACHING, what I want to get out of teaching, and the enjoyment and reward.” Dr. Russel Mumper.
