Introduction - the Flipped Classroom

This unit will be taught using the concept of the "flipped" classroom. This means that you will be expected to do the reading / research prior to coming to the class, and then be prepared to discuss the reading and research in the classroom either by way of a class discussion or by completing a written task. This is similar to how you will be taught at University, regardless of where this university is.

The success of this style of learning is entirely dependent on you. You are responsible for your own learning of this unit. If you do not complete the reading or research, you will be unable to participate in the class. You will also not have a complete set of notes with which to revise for your exams - I will not be delivering this in a "lecture style".

You will need to make full use of the resources I provide for you. You can, and should, also try to research some resources of your own - this will assist your learning and could give you greater insight in the classroom.

Good luck - if there are any problems then speak to me.
