Course Duration: 5 days
Course Fee: 400 EURO
This course is a kind of teacher training course which aims to support school staff with a new and innovative approach namely flipping their classes integrating ICT (Information and Communication Technology) based learning in their personal and professional development and school environment in line with priorities of Erasmus Plus Program.
Part of the paradigm shift that flipping lessons will create is how teachers plan their lessons. Traditionally in education, teachers plan lessons in this order: objectives, lecture, assessment. Teachers put together their learning objectives/outcomes, then plan out how they will explain the material to the students through lectures, and then finish off the planning process by coming up with assessments. The more typical assessments were exams and papers, with some group projects here thrown in the mix. When designing a flipped lesson, it's important that teachers take a different approach since the entire delivery process is changing.
Backward design is a lesson planning process that occurs in this order: objectives, assessment, lecture. It's always important to plan out objectives/outcomes first because they are the guideline for what we want our students to get out of the lesson. Objective writing in another sense is weeding out the necessary information from the not so necessary information. It's important to plan the assessment next because we are turning our students out on their own to listen to lectures. If our in-class assessment/activity isn't well thought out and weak, the flipped lesson will be as well. So immediately after you plan out your objectives create an assessment/activity that is a direct reflection of your objectives. Once you have the first two steps planned, then create the lecture media. This process will be easy because by now you'll have your thoughts well organized, and the assessment/activity already planned out. All you must do now is deliver to them the information that they need to be prepared for their assessment.
As a course provider, we want to develop the teachers’ professional skills and introduce them to appropriate websites related to 21st-century teaching methods focusing on creative thinking with interactive and inspiring workshops in a friendly atmosphere.
