Taking the First Flipping Step Toward Student-Centered Learning

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Educators are drawn to new ideas all the time, but the difference between inspiration and the ability to make it work in the classroom is practically an unbridgeable chasm. If you've been drawn to the flipped classroom because you think it offers something your current classroom doesn't, but you don't quite know how to make it work in your particular context, this session is for you. We won't spend too much time talking about how to make videos, but rather, we'll talk about fundamentally redesigning your classroom in order to make the flip work for you and your students. We'll show how we use inquiry-driven pedagogy to create a rich project-based learning classroom where students have real-world audiences for their work. We'll spend time sharing the structures that have made us successful in transitioning from a traditional classroom to one where the student is in the centre.
