Flexible environment & Learning culture comprise the next two installments of the twelve part F-L-I-P learning training series that provides a quick but complete overview of flipped learning’s foundations.
It is already time to release the next two installments of our FLIP training series! Flexible environment is the first of the four pillars of flipped learning, not because it is the most important, but because it is first in the acrostic. The flexible learning environment is also what many think of as the primary aspect of flipped learning, but without the other three flexibility alone is insufficient for a successful FLIP. The second pillar of FLIP is developing a learning culture. Changing the culture of the classroom is critical for student success as flipped learning redefines learning responsibilities and student teacher roles.
I hope you enjoy the first two installments of this training series, available here. Please enjoy these next two installments addressing the first two pillars of F-L-I-P. Each of the installments varies in length but are not longer than eleven minutes, with most significantly shorter.
