Engaging Busy Educators With Flipped PD
I have recently been leading educators in professional development at my private university. Our campus is one campus in a university system composed of 32 campuses with approximately 8000 faculty and over 100,000 students at the high school, undergraduate and graduate level. Much of our faculty training is top-down and difficult to navigate.
Over the past two years I have been planting my own style of courses to my colleagues. At first I offered local courses based on requests of my colleagues and have expanded my offer to purely online courses in an asynchronous format while keeping the social element high to foster engagement.
In this session, I plan to share my experiences as well as show feedback from my colleagues on my PD style.
Please watch the videos and include in the survey (see below) form your comments or questions about the experiences of teachers in my 2014 versions of a 5 week course giving an introduction to Flipped Classroom. Some videos may be in Spanish, feel free to skip through and watch whichever videos you like.
Current 2015 Course
Please review the current course (implemented in a Connected Courses format) and include in the survey (see below) form your comments or questions about this approach to PD
Link to current course here (Flipped Learning Open Course).
Much of this work is my following the great work of Alan Levine, Brian Lamb, Jim Groom and many others in the Connected Courses community.
This image was during recording of one of their videos for Brian and Alan’s “The You Show” course.
Please fill out the survey if you plan to attend (or even if you don’t) my session at FlipCon15.
