Flipping the traditional classroom

Course Outline

A few words about the thematic of the course: The flipped classroom follows a completely different approach than that followed in the traditional classroom. Students are actively engaged in the educational practice by pre-exposing themselves to the learning material via videos, podcasts, blogs, on line learning communities etc. In this way, teachers become facilitators while students regulate their own learning pace and achieve learning autonomy.
