The faculty of the Ateneo Graduate School of Business attended the capacity building program on “FLIPPED CLASSROOM” on August 18, 2015 at the Ateneo Professional Schools in Rockwell Drive, Makati City with Dr. Susan D’Aloia as seminar speaker.
Dr. D’Aloia is an interdisciplinary education and program developer who has worked as a consultant and trainer in the United States, Latin America and Asia. She maintains a passion for digital remediation of content and processes and working with educators who continue to maintain and innovate learning.
“Flipped classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional educational arrangement by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom and moves activities including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. In a flipped classroom model, students watch online lectures, collaborate in online discussions or carry out research at home and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of the instructor.” (Abeysekera, Lakmal, and Phillip Dawson 2015).
The participants learned about emerging concepts behind a flipped classroom and went through the techniques of creating flipped learning opportunities and the structure of a flipped lesson.
Said seminar was organized by Dr. Lydia C. King, AGSB Lead Online Consultant.
