The Flipped Learning Conference is back in Adelaide! This is the flipped learning event you’ve been waiting for …

  • Discover how you can flip learning in your primary or secondary classroom
  • Rapidly increase your understanding, skills, experience and know-how
  • Learn how flipped learning successfully increases student engagement and achievement
  • Work closely with Australia’s flipped learning expert, Jeremy LeCornu from Seaview High School (SA), and other experienced Australian educators who are making it happen and achieving outstanding results

Flipped learning makes sense in today’s digital classroom as a proven method to increase student engagement and results. In a flipped classroom, the student does the lower level (easier) learning before class, and utilises class time for higher level thinking, rich collaboration and maximised learning.

 “The most damaging phrase in the language is – it’s always been done that way. We need to find different ways.”
Nick Shepherd at TEDcMCPSTeachers August 2012 speaking on the flipped classroom
