This course has been divided into 3 segments. Section #1 must be completed successfully before Section #2 becomes available. Section #2 must be completed successfully before Section #3 becomes available.
In this first segment you will read about the Flipped Classroom and the history of this educational revolution. You will also begin setting the groundwork for your own Flipped Classroom by creating an online presence. If you already have a classroom website, that is If not, you will create a free wiki or a blog.
The second segment of this class you will spend time developing the skills needed to efficiently design a Flipped Classroom. You will learn how to create videos, Voki’s, google forms, and more. Additionally, you will learn how to embed these items into your website or wiki/blog. New to technology? Don’t worry. Although this is a self-paced course,there is a Dominican Instructor waiting in the wings to help you out. You can always send an email to your instructor or call them by phone.
This third and final segment of the course is the longest and most detailed. The goal of this segment is to create a Flipped Unit. The Unit chosen for this exercise should be long enough to span 3 to 4 weeks. The course guide will take you step-by-step through the development process. Your instructor will help you throughout each section of the Unit Plan development.
A word of warning: The more detailed you make your unit plan, the more success you will have in the actual implementation. An enormous problem that is occurring with flip teaching is the lack of comprehensive planning.
Teachers are ‘flipping’ because they have heard about the concept and they think they have a grasp on the process. Merely assigning a video for homework is not flip teaching. Remember this: Just because you see someone golfing, and have read about golfing, doesn’t mean you can hit the ball!
