At the Association of Educational Services Agencies’ (AESA) annual conference in Tampa, Pearson and the Flipped Learning Network today announced a joint venture to offer a comprehensive professional development course for educators looking to switch to the new “flipped learning” teaching model.

Flipped learning turns the school day around by having the teacher’s lecture delivered outside of the traditional classroom via video for students’ viewing on their own — at home or on-the-go. Class time is used for active problem solving by students and one-to-one or small group tutoring with the teacher.

With sixteen hours of online and face-to-face learning, educators will experience flipped lectures and discover how best to implement into their own classroom styles. Course attendees will have discussions about and view classroom footage to see how experienced flipped educators are using this model in an inquiry-based or mastery-learning environment, or in a more traditional class setting. A personal learning work plan will be developed for each educator; working with a coach, each will receive individual and small group follow-up to ensure successful implementation.

Course participants will have access to a comprehensive video library and will be guided by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams’s book Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day (ISTE/ASCD, 2012).

Professional Development

The great news on the PD front—at least from the districts who presented at the second School CIO Summit Conference this June—is that we’ve moved far away from the days of drive-by PD in which socalled experts come in once a year to show teachers how to use product X and expect them to begin using it perfectly by the very next day.
