Yours truly will be running this one! I hope you consider joining us. Note that this session is NOT iPad specific.
“This full day workshop will provide a practical learning experience for educators wishing to develop a plan to incorporate flipped teaching and learning techniques into their classes and courses. Those who have started working with flipped classroom techniques who wish to learn more and develop their plans will also benefit from the workshop. Practical hands-on exercises (bring your laptops or tablets!) will provide active learning experiences and help to reinforce techniques and content being covered. Participants will work with each other and the workshop instructor to explore new ideas and clear up misconceptions. Come develop or enhance your flipped classroom plan!”
