Flipped Learning in Language Teaching

Flipped Learning in Language Teaching 2021


Reach Every Student!




This five-week online workshop is designed for both those new to flipped learning and those who are already flipping their classes. The goal of flipped learning is to reach every student every day in a meaningful way. In flipped learning, the group learning space is revitalized and turned into a fertile environment for students to engage actively and creatively with learning. Thus, participants in the session will not only gain further insight into the concepts and processes of flipped learning in order to transform their pedagogical practice, but also learn about tools to enhance direct instruction and individual learning. Of course, as much as p ossible, the workshop employs a flipped approach!
