This faculty development workshop, part of an Australian government Office for Learning and Teaching research grant, aims to builds instructor capacity in designing, implementing and evaluating flipped learning in their classes. Now a well-established form of blended learning, flipped design involves students undertaking traditional ‘homework’ tasks in advance of a face-to-face session, where they can apply and consolidate their developing knowledge.  There is a growing body of evidence that this pedagogy has a valid place in higher education.

Central to all successful flipped classrooms is the instructor’s ability to translate this learning concept into real-life practice.  Following participation in the workshop, participants will be able to design their flipped classroom for the first time, or refine their already existing flipped learning approaches

Around 10 days before the workshop, you will be involved in a ‘real life’ experience of a flipped classroom through the completion of a short online activity, which will complement the group-based work during the face-to-face interactive session. Actively participating in this workshop will provide insight into the students’ experience when asked to learn this way, and the challenges that instructors’ experience when flipping their classes.

This workshop is a co-sponsored event between the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation and the Department of Physiology, University of Toronto.
