PCI Webinar with Paul Signorelli
Playing With the Flipped Classroom Model
Competency: Staff Training and Development
Sub-Category: Establish strategies and long-range initiatives to create a learning environment within the library
Using classroom time effectively is at the heart of the engaging and playful Flipped Classroom model of instruction—a model that relies on learners viewing brief video lectures or other resources before arriving in their onsite or online learning spaces to apply what they have learned.
We’ll take a complete Flipped Classroom model approach to exploring the model in this highly interactive webinar. Participants are asked to watch the following two videos and arrive ready to work together online to see how the model can be applied in their own worksites:
“The Flipped Classroom: Rethinking Time and Space,” featuring Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams Edutopia, October 28, 2014
“The Flipped Classroom Is Not…” Matt Johnson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGs6ND7a9ac
Participants, by the time they leave the session, will:
- Be able to cite at least three ways that elements of the Flipped Classroom model can be incorporated into learning opportunities for library staff and/or library users
- Have at least three examples they can draw upon as they consider incorporating elements of the Flipped Classroom model into their own work
- Have begun determining at least two concrete steps they will take within a month to incorporate elements of the Flipped Classroom model into their library learning offerings
