I found the course very worth the time it took me to go through all of the modules. Even though I was already familiar with much of the material, I still learned (or relearned) something from every one of them. The wide range of pedagogies and strategies discussed which can (and should) be used under the meta-strategy of flipped learning was terrific. My future students should benefit greatly from me experiencing this course.

Absolutely interesting; the idea of considering flipping as a metastrategy for other teaching methods is great as it gives the opportunity to learn about them and 'blend' them into your teaching. What I would suggest is adding examples of what actually happens in class; you could add additional videos for those who want to 'see' a method put into practice (for example I found the module on gamification and flipping rather theoretical). All in all thanks for all this 'food for thought' and for inspiring teachers!

I have really enjoyed the course and have learnt a great deal from it. I have really liked how the units have been arranged and how it is all organised. One thing I have really appreciated is the time to complete it. I have had the year subscription as I knew I would struggle to complete it within 3 months based on my situation here. The presenters used are of high quality and have provided some excellent tips. Also I have liked the way there is a forum at the end of each section. This is an area I have needed to develop and has helped me do that.

This course truly takes one deeper into flipped learning by building on the fact that a flipped classroom enables a teacher to implement a wide variety of other active learning methods. Experts in their fields shared their best practices related to a wide range of strategies, everything from the in-class flip, to gamification to Socratic seminars. The theory and research behind flipped learning was coupled with actionable items that any teacher could implement immediately.

This is has provided me with many resources to further explore the strategies in more detail to use in my context (higher ed). The course was really valuable.

I thought this was a great course. It was PACKED with many great strategies for implementing active learning in the group space in a Flipped Learning environment. The "guest instructors" were very knowledgeable about their topics.
