Flipping the Art Room

Flipping the Art Room

Imagine an art classroom where you don’t have to repeat yourself, where students can learn at an individualized pace, and where classroom management is addressed without interrupting learning. Sound too good to be true? Not anymore! All of this, and more, can be yours with a groundbreaking instructional method called Flipped Teaching.

Throughout this course, you’ll learn practical ways to
“flip” your art room by creating instructional videos students can watch at home or during class. Whether you flip a whole course, one complicated lesson, or use this concept simply for sub plans, flipped teaching will help promote autonomy, differentiate instruction, and allow you to spend class time doing what you do best: teaching!

"I introduced a flipped lesson in class today and feel this class prepared me to make that successful. What I learned will directly make me a better teacher, so I feel the time and money was well-spent. I also appreciate that the cost per credit hour is much cheaper than state schools in my area."
Elizabeth T.

"I would like to see the K-5 Art Specialsits in our district, all 10 of us, take this course together. I believe that Flipping is a great teaching tool. It is such a good fit for teaching art. I would recommend this class to K-12 Art Specialists interested in learning how to Flip. AOE, you have really created an excellent course!"
