FLIPPED LEARNING FOR INCLUSIVE TEACHING - COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

Introduction

This course is aimed at teachers and school staff from primary to adult level as well as educational advisors and staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers. The traditional model of classroom instruction where the teacher lectures the new content in class proves to be less efficient because it is time consuming and it focuses on the teacher. Therefore, little time is left for more complex tasks and deeper understanding of the content.  Flipped Learning is an innovative approach where students get their first exposure to content before coming to class and then spend in-class time engaging in activities in a dynamic, interactive learning environment. Students are active learners and the teacher guides them as they apply concepts and “dig” deeper into the subject matter. Flipped classrooms focus on active learning and student engagement giving the teacher more time to deal with mixed levels, SEN students and differentiated learning styles during the in-class time. Our course on flipped classrooms will help you learn how to deliver home lectures to students through engaging videos, differentiate tasks and instructions to reach every student and how to organize the in-class time to get the most out of it. Help your students learn at their own pace, take responsibility for their own learning and create an inclusive learning environment with this innovative teaching practice.

 

Methodology

Methodology is based on active participation, hands-on activities and experiential learning suitable and applicable in different subjects and at various levels. Participants will acquire practical knowledge and develop their own skills through workshops, model lessons, project based learning, collaborative activities and hands-on interaction with ICT tools applicable for Flipped learning and teaching.

 

Objectives

  • Understanding the concept of Flipped Learning and how to successfully implement it in their teaching

  • Creating ready‐to‐use materials, acquisition of practical ideas to implement and evaluate Flipped Learning in their schools

  • Familiarizing with innovative ICT tools and LMS for delivering new content and tracking students’ progress

  • Learning to to differentiate activities according to students learning styles, interests and diverse socio-cultural backgrounds to create an inclusive learning environment

  • Developing learner’s key competences such as creativity, critical thinking, media and digital literacy

  • Incorporating ideas, techniques, and cooperative tasks in their own lesson plans

  • Improving the use of English (official language of the course)

  • Promoting intercultural awareness

  • Sharing experiences of educational methodologies as well as diverse teaching strategies in different countries in order to help each of us to be more effective in our work

  • Developing a virtual collaboration platform for preparation, dissemination and networking in order to develop future partnerships and projects

  • Strengthening the European collaboration among educators.

  • Providing insights into different education systems

 

 

Preparation

After registration participants will receive a pre-course questionnaire which will be used by the trainer to learn about participants’ teaching backgrounds and to assess their exact needs. Before the beginning of the course a basic reading list will be suggested to participants to prepare for the training. Participants will also be asked to publish a presentation about themselves, their professional context and their culture. The presentation will be available on the virtual collaboration platform. It will be used during the first meeting, but it will also be available online to the other participants so that they can have a preliminary knowledge of the group they are going to be part of. Participants will receive information about the country they are going to visit in order to prepare them for their cultural experience.

Follow up

 

After the course participants will be asked to share what they have learned with the rest of the staff in their schools. Since they will all join the virtual collaboration platform they will be able to further discuss and deepen the understanding of the themes of this course and therefore keep on learning. Moreover, they will be encouraged to share materials showing how they are using what they have learned in their everyday work in terms of ideas, photos, videos, lesson plans, assessment and self-assessment forms, etc. creating an open educational resource available to everyone else from the group. Thanks to the virtual collaboration platform they will all be networked which will provide greater opportunities to develop future partnerships and projects. Further books and articles to deepen the topic and contacts with some other practitioners all over Europe and in the world will be suggested by the trainer. The methods shared and explored and the bibliography given will allow the participants to complete and improve their educational path.

 

Certificate

 

Each participant will get a course attendance certificate and the Europass Mobility Document.

 

Paperwork

We also provide all the support with paperwork you might need for your Erasmus+ project documentation such as mobility agreement and registration letter.
