About this learning opportunity

Please note: the webinar information (link and how to access the webinar) will be emailed to you 2 hours prior to the webinar start time (MDT). If you have not received the webinar link by then, please email 

“Flipping the Classroom” is a form of blended learning and though it has been around for a while, it can prove to be an “new” way of learning so that in-class learning becomes more interactive. This approach supports in-class, online and blended instructional circumstances.

Participants in this session will be sent viewing materials prior to the date so that our “in-class/online learning” can be optimized!

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
