630 – CTS in Flipped Classrooms

Course Description:

Flipping the classroom means that events that have traditionally taken place inside the classroom now take place outside the classroom and vice versa. Content delivery is done at home. Application, analysis and synthesis of information is done in class through activities and interactive teaching strategies.

This course aims to study the concept of flipped classroom presenting strategies to deliver flipped lessons in the most effective ways and ideas for engaging students in meaningful learning activities. Using technology to support pedagogy, participants will create lessons, and materials for students to use independently of the teacher in order to maximize the use of classroom time, as well as support differentiation and mastery learning.
