This Evening's L&D Talk:

Flipping the Classroom-Why Upside Down is Better  
The flipped classroom intentionally shifts instruction to a learner-centered model in which class time explores topics in greater depth and creates meaningful learning opportunities, while educational technologies such as online videos are used to 'deliver content' outside of the classroom


The flipped classroom challenges us to really think about how we are treating home study, and how this connects to the times that we bring our people in for LIVE training.  Technology platforms have allowed us to serve deeper, more interactive learning experiences as part of a more robust home study for our new hires and for up training.  This allows us to design a LIVE learning experience that is almost EXCLUSIVELY application-based.  Our learners come in with the content knowledge and expect to immediately apply it in interactive workshops.  

Guest Speaker: Chuck Pearson, Executive Director, Commercial Operations, Astellas Pharma and LTEN Board of Directors
