Gamify and Flip Your Professional Development

gblWorkshop Description

Flipping the classroom is becoming more and more popular today. Students and their teachers appear to greatly benefit from the flipped classroom model. But what about flipping professional development for educators?

Pop into this workshop and see how we (Concordia Shanghai) are changing our professional development from a traditional workshop based model, to a flipped classroom model. Listen to the stories of our successes and mistakes (and there are many) as we pilot this new program.

Attendees will walk away with understanding

* The flipped classroom model
* The tech behind creating a flipped PD program
* Our Harry Potter themed (weird I know) incentive program
* How to add a game based learning approach to professional development
* The use of digital badges as a motivator
* Bringing graduate credit as part of the equation
