Upcoming Flipped Learning Workshop in Hartford, CT (November 9th)

There will be an "unconference" style Flipped Learning Workshop in Hartford, CT hosted by CREC on November 9th.  Josiah Hills, Educational Technology Specialist for CREC, has done a great job advancing meaningful technology integration across the region by putting together these workshops as well as hosting the Educational Technology Conversations podcast with co-host Rob Stellar. ( I have recently added this to my podcast lineup during the commute.)

Below is information directly from the official workshop flier for those interested in attending:


Find out more about the flipped classroom and what it really means. 
Attendees will have opportunities to learn about, plan for and actually make flipped lessons. The day’s activities will include a mix of interactive presentations and “un-conference” style participant facilitated work sessions. Topics will include: 
  • Developing and/or finding video instruction 
  • Using Learning Management tools to host and share content 
  • Using digital tools to assess understanding 
  • Putting recaptured class time to good use with performance assessments 
  • Whatever you bring to the table! 
If you’re thinking about implementing a flip in your classroom, then this is the workshop for you.
