Full course description

Flippin’ instruction! You’ve heard the buzzword, “flipped classroom,” but what is it and can real-world teachers actually do it? Second question first: absolutely yes!

When you flip your classroom, you turn upside down the standard model in which direct instruction takes place in the classroom and kids go-it-alone with practice for homework. In a flipped classroom, kids independently watch short video lessons which provide direct instruction, and then you get to spend class time having quality interactions that increase engagement, build relationships, and make it easy to individualize instruction.

Learn everything you need to begin your own journey into the world of flipped instruction with this course. It’s easier than it sounds. You’ll be able to create and post your own video instruction in no time! And every course section offers Assessment of Knowledge (AOK) project options from which you come away with useful curriculum materials created just for your kids, by you. Score!

District approval for university credit is recommended before enrolling as tuition is non-refundable. The University of the Pacific does not guarantee units will be accepted by any entity.
