Flipped classroom is more than a buzzword, it’s a way to regain lost time and provide support for students where they really need it. This became especially apparent in ITV-based distance courses where lost time due to technology-related delays created great frustration. What language educators don’t realize is that this is a pedagogical hop for them, not a leap. Unlike other disciplines, language educators are very accustomed to and comfortable with students working in groups and pairs as they problem solve, think critically and develop content in the target language to demonstrate their knowledge. Participants in this session will identify techniques to move the “fact learning” lower order thinking skills parts of lessons to independent study and the application of learning to a supported teacher-guided environment. This session demonstrates how flipping lessons regains contact time to focus on applying knowledge, how educators can more easily differentiate for students, and how students help themselves by focusing on their individual needs. Examples provided in several languages and data from Russian ITV courses as well as face-to-face courses supports this approach for any learning environment. A website with sample lessons and technologies that can be integrated to support flipped lessons will be made available to all participants.
