What is this course about?
In this course, participants will understand the idea behind flipped classrooms and how it can be integrated into their own classroom curriculum. The flipped classroom has been defined as a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to hands on exercises, projects, or discussions.
Flipped (upside down) classrooms focus on active learning and student engagement giving the instructor a better opportunity to deal with mixed levels, student difficulties, and differentiated learning styles during in class time.
By the end of this course, participants will have a full understanding of this new method and be able to confidently implement a “Flipped Classroom” lesson.

The language used is English, though with a minimum of 6 participants a session can be organised in Spanish or for any other specific need and location.
