Best Practices in Flipped Class Design will give you the knowledge about how flipped learning works in different disciplines and the conceptual tools for constructing a flipped classroom of your own. This webinar is taught by Robert Talbert, Ph.D., associate professor in the mathematics department at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan.

This time-friendly online live seminar, hosted by CELT, is designed for practitioners of the flipped classroom model, those who are interested in becoming a practitioner, and those who want to refine their implementations of flipped learning.

Best Practices in Flipped Class Design will enable you to:
== Write a list of clearly stated learning objectives for an instructional unit and reorder them in order of complexity using Bloom's Taxonomy
== Design an in-class activity for a flipped learning session that engages students in advance learning objectives
== Write a pre-class activity for a flipped learning session that guides learners through the acquisition of basic learning objectives and has a high rate of completion
== Apply the workflow for planning a flipped learning session to specific instances, including your own classes

With Talbert as your guide, you'll map out a series of practical steps that you can apply, either to a course that is already flipped or to one that you would like to try out.

A long-standing model for teaching consisted of two separate but mutually complementary parts:

First, teachers would expose students to new course material in the classroom through lectures, audiovisual presentations, and other in-class demonstrations.

Then, students would study and assimilate the lessons on their own--outside of class.

But a different teaching paradigm is disrupting this traditional approach in dramatic ways.

The shift has students introducing themselves to the material first and using class time to process what they've studied. In short, the plan for learning has flipped.

Some educators say that the flipped class is better suited to accommodate the way that students learn today, while others have more fundamental questions and concerns.
