Description

In this course, participants will understand the idea behind flipped classrooms and how they can integrate it into their own classroom curriculum. This approach 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 the 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. 

Concept by: Iacopo Falciani

Reviews about this course

I have had a wonderful experience since the beginning, even before the course started. The communication with the school staff was great, and they solved all my questions nicely and quickly. Then the course itself was way over my expectations and now I feel so eager to apply what I have learned in my school. I’d like to thank everyone at Europass for their work and I hope to get back as soon as I can and bring colleagues with me, too.

I have to say this was the best thing I’ve done to improve my teaching in fifteen years. The course was completely hands-on and the mentor positive, organized, encouraging, and helpful. We were made to immediately subscribe to, install and try out the various programs and learning platforms we were introduced to so that even the less technologically adventurous participants learned to use them with ease. The course was carefully structured and the management/office staff welcoming and efficient.

Josette Galea

Attending this course was one of the most amazing professional experiences! I have learned many tools which will help me to modernize my work in the classroom (Thinglink, Padlet, Popplet, edPuzzle, Kahoot, Mind Mapping, etc.). Also, now I understand the idea behind Flipped Classroom and how to integrate it into my lessons. I improved my vocabulary and English speaking! A great course, I will recommend it to all those who want to improve knowledge about modern classroom and teaching.

Daria Papa

I was very pleased with the course, the information was well structured and the schedule allowed us to benefit from both academic and cultural experiences. Our trainer was very helpful and created a relaxed atmosphere during the course. I was glad to meet fellow colleagues and share teaching experiences with them. I hope we’ll have the chance to collaborate in the future.

Madalina Busoi

The course was interesting, challenging and very involving! We explored the basic functions of Google apps for education, we used apps for creating quizzes, we learned how to use different apps for bringing the class together in one virtual space. The trainer and colleagues were very inspirational. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to improve teaching practice and implement a flipped classroom approach!

Ivana Inić

At the end of the course we understood the idea behind the flipped classroom and how it can be integrated into the class curriculum. Now we are able to implement a lesson flipped classroom and we gained confidence to prepare effectively a lesson plan.
