Nordplus Junior project on Flipped Learning
The Project NEXT – From Best to Next Practices in Flipped Learning is funded by Nordplus Junior. The focus will be to create an active expert network of teachers in the partner countries practising flipped learning in and as a part of their educational contexts, specifically by highlighting best practice initiatives.
Flipped Learning has for the past few years been a revelation in the traditional school system, especially when dealing with equal opportunities to learning by bridging both time-issues, distances and learning disabilities. Numerous initiatives have been taking place all around the world, most noticeable in the United States, but mainly the changes have been on the individual or local level.
NEXT – From Best to Next Practices in Flipped Learning
The project (NEXT) aims to create an active expert network of teachers in the partner countries (Iceland, Denmark, Finland and Estonia) that are currently practising and researching Flipped Learning in and as a part of their educational contexts, specifically by highlighting best practice initiatives.
The network will be manifested in a common Nordic Center for Flipped Learning and through national information platforms and websites. The goal is to provide teachers with a peer platform to share experiences, best practices, use of applications and teaching methods, as well as sharing results of research on the subject of Flipped Learning.
The network should be available at all educational levels, whereas the focus is on methodology and use of technology and teaching methods, rather than course content.
The project is funded by Nordplus Junior and will run for a total of 12 months, from August 2016 to August 2017. During the project lifetime a series of regional, national and international workshops will be arranged and carried out in the partnership countries. Partners involve Keilir Academy in Iceland, University of Turku in Finland, University of Tallinn in Estonia and University College South-Denmark.
