Breakout Session

Flipped Professional Development
Track: Learning & Teaching Innovations        

Breakout Session II
Thurs. 10:30am-11:30am

Abstract
The flipped classroom has been a hot topic in education for a number of years. More recently, the idea of flipping professional development has been experimented at schools and in corporate training. The idea is to rethink what we want to spend our time with in face to face sessions and how can we move training before and after those sessions to be self-directed. Face-to-face training time, especially with technology integration, is used most efficiently when the lower level portions are done online and offline outside those encounters.
