When you're done you'll have the ability to distinguish between the good, the bad and the ugly in flipped learning technology. You'll also receive a certificate to prove that you've been trained in this vital skill.

Wish my school had seen this before some of our decisions in the recent past

by john bristow
Course is short, concise, and packed with examples of what not to do--some humorous and some OMG why would someone do that? Packed with knowledge and well worth the hour or so that it takes to go through the videos. Advice: plan on spending 90 minutes or so in a single sitting if possible )if you are doing the course alone). If you are doing this as a group, do three or four videos and then discuss.
