Flip the Classroom!
Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Immigration is currently a widespread phenomenon in European societies. Many adults are under compulsion to move to the other country due to the lack of employment. Adults when moving to a foreign country, often don’t know even the basics of the local language. It is desirable to offer them language courses with well-trained personnel and innovative methods. The project is aimed to introduce adult’s literacy teachers with innovative methods of learning immigrants foreign languages. It concentrates mainly on the concept of the Flipped Classroom. During the project, it will be explained what the Flipped Classroom exactly is and what are its main strengths. Participants will gain a knowledge about the adult’s education characteristics. Teachers will participate in lectures, practical exercises, activities based on role plays and more. Presentations, various types of information and communication technologies (ICT) and other innovative methods will be used. During the project, discussions will be held to compare participants views, knowledge and experiences associated with teaching adults. Expected outputs (especially in terms of the learning outcomes for the participants and impact on their organisations/institutions): The project aims to provide adult literacy teachers with the knowledge on how to enrich the process of teaching adults foreign languages. Special attention will be given to the technique known as „Flipped Classroom”. At the end of the course, teachers should be provided with following outputs: • Understanding the definition and the concept of „Flipped Classroom”, how to use the concept and why is it useful to teach adults using the concept • Will be given the examples of its usage • Will obtain the knowledge on how to improve the process of teaching adults literacy • Will be provided with an information on how to gain more time during the classes for the practical tasks • Teachers will be able to insert their new knowledge into the organizations/institutions they are working for.
