What is “flipped” teaching? What is blended learning? What do learners do in class? At home? Come along to this session to explore myths and misconceptions about “flipped” classrooms and “blended” learning approaches. The session will outline the benefits of hybrid courses by focusing on creating individualised learning opportunities, flexible spaces for reflection and new forms interaction. The session will show how the real “flip” in course design and delivery isn’t about new tools, how it isn’t about sharing a new video to watch before a face-to-face session or simply doing homework on a screen. Profitable, successful flips or blends depend on offering opportunities for discovery, co-operation, collective effort and interaction and developing knowledge, new levels of engagement and responsibility together.
Making it flip not flop means valuing the humans at the centre of the educational process.
