Flipped Classroom

Access the course materials from your computer, a smart phone or a public library!  You can even learn in your Pajamas!

The courses are deep — consisting of 8 modules.  Every couple of weeks, enrolled participants will have access to a new module that will consist of:

  • a recorded 40-minute web-based video presentation (led by the instructor)
  • an article plus other readings (such as book chapters or links to other articles)
  • other relevant resources (such as supporting videos)
  • a quiz
  • (there is also an opportunity for a live web/phone call discussion or “process circle” with the instructor and other participants)
  • We encourage you to form a local “community of practice” with others in your congregation or geographic cluster.  We will help connect you and will supply you with study/discussion materials and activities.
