The Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) is offering professional development for teachers called ANU Coffee Courses. These short, fully online courses can be done in just 10 minutes a day while you have a quick coffee (or tea) break.

Flipping the classroom

Our first coffee course will be about flipping the classroom. Flipping the classroom is a method of delivering where the traditional format of lecture / tutorial / homework is flipped – students usually watch pre-recorded lecture videos in their own time before class, and spend their time in class with the teaching staff engaging in activities, experiments, presentations, problem-based learning, or other active learning activities. This is then followed by a reflective or discussion-type activity after class. This coffee course will cover the basics of how to develop a flipped classroom model for your teaching, with practical ideas, and strategies on how to effectively flip your course. It will include examples from across ANU and other Australian universities from different disciplines, and you can connect with other teachers.

How does the course work?

The entire course is online, at your own pace through our ANU Coffee Course blog. We encourage you to make a cup of coffee or tea and work through the material. Each post includes an activity or discussion question for you to respond to in the comment section of the blog
