Flipped Learning – what does that mean? Can it be applied at work for learning?

I first heard about this at the Elliot Masie’s Learning 2010 conference last year and was very taken with the idea.  Here’s the premise shown in this short 2 min. video.

What I would like to do is apply this at work with adult education.  I think there are many courses that we do online, where we are essentially teaching to a virtual classroom, now what if we just provided the video and held follow up workshops for homework or lab exercises? We could make the initial teaching video as a pre-requisite and have the lab exercises be what we do in the live virtual session.  I am planning to try this out at work, I wonder if adult learners will take to this as well as the student’s in this video.  A follow up blog will summarize what I learned once we try this out.

  1. Anna, if you like this (which I do, too) you should take a look at Khan Academy as well. It is developed on the same premise.

    I’ve had limited success with learning at work, but want to keep trying and improving!

    Thanks Ellen! I will take a look at Khan Academy as well.
