Flipped Classroom

This course aims to support school staffs 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.
Traditionally in education teachers plan lessons in this order: objectives, lecture, assesment. Teachers put together their learning objectives/outcomes, then they plan out how they will explain the material to the students through lecture and then finish off the planning process by coming up with assessments. 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 take places in the following orders goals, evaluation, lessons. It's always important to plan the goals/outcomes first, as these are guidelines of what we want our students to achieve from the lesson.
In other sense, objective writing to extract the necessery information from non-essential information. After that it is important to plan the assessment because we choose or students to listen to the lectures on their own. 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 have to 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 to appropriate websites related to 21st-century teaching methods focusing on creative thinking with interactive and inspiring workshops in a friendly atmosphere.
