Flipped Learning in Language Teaching





This five-week online workshop is designed for both those new to flipped learning and those who are already flipping their classes. In flipped learning, content delivery takes place outside of class freeing the instructor to focus class on interactive, collaborative projects and activities for maximum language acquisition in a meaningful context. Participants will practice with various video creation tools, gain skills in curating already existing media, and will learn how to effectively incorporate these resources into their teaching practices. Of course, whenever possible, the workshop employs a flipped approach!

Session Objectives

By the end of this workshop, participants will have

  • mastered the concepts underlying the flipped learning approach and how it differs from a flipped classroom 
  • had a hands-on experience on how to work with video creation tools
  • created an instructional video and uploaded it to an online repository and saved it as an mp4 on the computer
  • practiced editing video, adding captions, and creating user-friendly video lessons
  • practiced using accountability building sites like educannon, educaplay and edpuzzle 
  • developed expertise in deciding what to put on video – intentional content
  • seen examples of different types of flipped learning settings 
  • networked with other participants and shared plans for flipped lessons and projects
  • implemented a flipped lesson with students (if currently teaching) and posted about it in a forum
  • designed a plan for flipping one course or one segment of a course in the future




Target audience


Target audience: Teachers (K-12, higher education, adult education), online and traditional educators, course developers and curriculum coordinators, and program administrators.
