Great News for Blending/Flipping Cohort

This past year AEA PD Online, in conjunction with 5 AEAs (Mississippi Bend, Great Prairie, Heartland, Green Hills and Keystone), helped 49 districts statewide learn more about Blended and Flipped Learning in the Classroom. Some of these districts are making this part of their Professional Development instruction. If you are interested in participating in the Blended/Flipped Learning cohort you can contact your AEA Instructional Technologist or AEA PD Online K-12 Instructional Designers Denise Krefting or Melissa Wicklund.

These cohorts consist of 4 courses that teachers and administrators can take through out a 1 1/2 year period.  You will learn more about the pedagogical change teachers and classrooms will go through to offer blended or online opportunities. 
  1. The first course is a three day face-to-face training on "Blending/Flipping your classroom 1" for one license renewal credit.  
  2. The second course is a fully online course "Blending/Flipping 2- Blended Instruction" as well as an elementary option for two credits (license renewal and graduate) which is available to those who have completed the first course.  
  3. The third in the series is "Blending/Flipping Your Classroom 3: Designing Online Lessons" which will take place as a blended model with two days face-to-face and the rest online for those who have completed the first two courses. This course is also two credits (license renewal and graduate).  
  4. Finally the fourth in this series is "Blending/Flipping 4: Assessment "which will take place as a blended model with two days face-to-face and the rest online and is also 2 credits (license renewal and graduate) for those who have taken the three other courses.  
The last three courses in the series (six credits) can also be applied to the Drake Online Teacher certification for those that are interested.
