Tuesday Tip: The Flipped Classroom [Video 1.53min]

SHARE THIS POST :

One of the most exciting revolutions in education is called the flipped classroom. Up to now, whether it’s been at school, or university, or in a training department – the expert, the lecturer has been the person who’s taken a significant chunk of time to impart information transfer data to the students. The learner is then sent back home for homework or back into the office for on the job training to assimilated that information.

Why not flip that around. In this digital world we can digitally share / transfer the information prior to the lesson and then actually get the most out of the teachers and lecturers as they help the learners really assimilate the information.

  1. The ‘flipped’ approach is a wonderful learning strategy. My clients get so much more from a day of my time when they do pre-reading, pre-listening, or pre-watching. They are ready to discuss workshop contents and develop implementation plans during our time together. They are ready to make more impact as professional and their organizations get a significantly higher ROI on their professional development investment.

    1. Hi Graeme — I agree 100%+ — the challenge I have had with Pre Workshop reading is that the Delegates in the main dont do so and them you have a % of the class behind those that have done the reading and or pre-work — how do we get people to buy in as often they are at workshops only because their boss said they must go or because they need the points for Attending so they can get a certificate and promotion

      Adolph, the problem you’re dealing with there is not the flipped classroom, it’s the issue that the people in the room don’t want to be there. Nothing you do for that crowd is going to be that valuable. Part of the solution is to give them a compelling reason to want to consume your content and learn/grow/develop. So, some prework that engages with them would be valuable for them and you – but it’s not just about giving them some of your content in advance, it’s about actually engaging them with the learning outcomes right from the beginning.
