Jerry Overmyer gave us an excellent overview of “flipped” learning at our January meeting at UNC. Jerry is the creator of the Flipped Learning Network’s professional learning and community of practice. Jerry shared his unique insight and expertise on flipped learning to show how flipped learning has evolved immensely in the last 7 years. His presentation defined the basics of flipped learning, dispelled some misconceptions, and showed the easiest ways to take the first-steps towards flipping. Jerry credited Colorado’s own Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann from Woodland Park for being the first instructors to “flip” their classrooms.
Below are some resources from Jerry’s presentation:
