Objectives:

Flipped learning is by no means new to teachers, but now that teaching is delivered remotely,  there is an imperative to investigate less didactic methods of delivery. Exploring ways that flipped learning might be successfully employed in the online classroom, with EAL learners in mind, Mr Andrew Pritchett will demonstrate some of the advantages of moving the instruction out of the class and spending more time on engaging with the learners in the online classroom. Dr Nathan Mahlmeister will focus on how flipped learning can be used to deliver the science curriculum in an international setting.
