This in-person workshop provides a solid foundation for the best practices of the flipped classroom. The workshop models flipped classroom strategies by assigning participants pre-readings and a readiness assessment quiz. Each lesson modeled uses a template that is easily adaptable and remains accessible with an active gatorlink.
After registering, participants will receive a welcome email with instructions for logging into the course and accessing the materials to complete prior to the workshop. During the workshop, the facilitators will guide individuals through the relevant materials for each flipped classroom strategy.
The readiness assessment activity, or pre-quiz, encourages participants to complete the pre-readings prior to attending the workshop. These materials prepare participants for the various peer interactions that will occur within each flipped strategy.
Through Ice Breaker activities, facilitators will seek to establish a positive and supportive classroom community. Fostering a collaborative learning environment early on allows participants to engage more deeply with one another and the content.
The workshop provides information on a wide variety of instructional strategies, including the use of visual cues to stimulate the recall of key vocabulary or ideas to promote lasting learning. “Scene-It” is a great way to introduce a topic and assess a participants’ basic knowledge before delving further into the content.
With a strong emphasis on collaboration, discussion, and presentation, participants are asked to solve real-world issues. This instructional strategy engages participants by utilizing their life experiences, and the materials provided, to create possible solutions to a given scenario.
