Flipping the classroom radically transforms the learning model regardless of whether it happens in universities, company training services or classrooms. Are you a fan? Have you tried it yourself? And if you have – what have been the results?

Sylvia Moes

Dear Annemie,

I'm a fan, because our students reacted very positive on the 3 case studies of the REC:all project, where we have worked last semester for the first time with the concept of "flipping".

I will give a presentation on this in the session you are chairing. (instead of Andy)

Thanks a lot Sylvia! Welcome to the session - looking forward to discussing with you in Brussels. Annemie

Dear All,

In preparation of the discussions on Flipping the Classroom, you could check some short video introductions on the concept of the flipped classroom:

or, if you have more time, watch 'Confessions of a converted lecturer' - Eric Mazur about Peer Instruction: http://youtu.be/WwslBPj8GgI

Interesting information in Dutch can be found at the Kennisnet site https://sites.google.com/site/flipdeverdieping/home.

And of course there is also criticism. Check for example Shirley Wright on 'The Flip - End of a Love Affair' at http://plpnetwork.com/2012/10/08/flip-love-affair/

Looking forward to a great interactive session! See you in Brussels on Wednesday!
