Webinar Descriptions

The Flipped-Mastery Classroom Model for Universities

In a Flipped-Mastery Classroom, students work through the curriculum in a flexible-paced manner where they are expected to master key objectives. It creates an individualized learning experience for each student while still happening in the typical classroom setting.   This type of course, at first, seems daunting.  Jon will explain the key components to the Flipped-Mastery classroom and how to move towards a student-centric mastery classroom. 

Tech Tools to Flip Your Class: From Crazy Easy to Powerful

About Jon Bergmann

Jon Bergmann is a teacher who used to love being the center of the classroom.  But he gave it up when he saw how engaged his students became  in the learning process when he began flipping his instruction. Flipped Learning  allowed him to know his students better which brought him back to the reason he became a teacher in the first place. He is considered one of pioneers of the Flipped Learning and now shares his passion for learner-centered classrooms with educators around the globe. He is currently Chief Learning Officer of TurnAbout Learning.  He received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching in 2002, and was named a semi-finalist for Colorado Teacher of the Year in 2010.  

Jon serves on the advisory board of TED Education, and hosts “The Flip Side,” a radio show which tells the stories of Flipped educators. Additionally, he is a founding board member and the treasurer of the Flipped Learning Network™, the only not-for-profit organization run by and for flipped educators.

He is co-author of the ISTE ASCD press books Flip Your Classroom Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day, and Flipped Learning Gateway to Student Engagement.
