Teaching for the Future

Teaching for the future

Since the main objective of this project is promoting the acquisition of skills and competences through innovative practices and methods, Teaching for the future aims to develop a joint trial among project partners of the “flipped learning” approach in higher education STEM disciplines.

In STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and IT), and indeed many others, lectures are still a major component of most school courses. Since school is changing quickly, it is necessary to re-analyze the classical theoretical models of approaches to learning and teaching, so as to be able to take advantage of the potential offered by new technologies and to better answer students’ new learning needs. The “flipped“ approach to teaching has become particularly attractive because of the availability of internet resources including audio and video on virtually any subject and the approach seems to have singular appeal to students in this electronic age, where videos in particular have found a special place in the heart of the “Awesome Generation”.

“Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students, as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter” (FLIPPED LEARNING NETWORK, 2014).
