Engaging Busy Educators With Flipped PD

Abstract

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.

Ken's name badge at our retreat.
I customized my badge with keywords and the title I want on my business cards.

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.

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.
