WHAT IS A FLIPPED MEETING?
Quit the Announcements
Teacher Led PD
Teachers are given informational items to
read and view in advance. By flipping the
meeting, formerly leader-driven meetings
transform into distributed, leadership
meetings. Time is spent more creatively, with
teachers taking a more active role.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN FLIPPING
Why are you flipping your meeting?
How much info do you give them before
the meeting? If you record yourself, how
long is “too” long?
What tools are you going to use to flip?
Who will benefit from the experience?
What topics need to be discussed?
What outcomes do you want?
