Flipped Learning has shown great promise and potential, but there have also been several pitfalls. There are a myriad of ways that flipped learning can be compromised by bad practice, inappropriate technology, and poor execution. To that end, the Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI), a worldwide coalition of educators, researchers, technologists, professional development providers and education leaders, has created this Flipped Learning Certification Program. When you complete this course you will be Flipped Learning Certified Level - I.
