That didn’t take long. Less than a month after the Flipped Learning Global Initiative unveiled a new certification track, the organization has its first group of 16 credential holders. The new certification, “Flipped Learning Level 1,” is intended to help teachers and administrators gain a foundational understanding of the flipped classroom. The training to achieve the first certification requires viewing 6.5 hours of video (broken into 88 lectures), reading one article, and passing nine quizzes. Topics cover the reason to flip a classroom, how to plan, best practices, the tools to use, what to do in class, how to flip specific subjects and assess in a flipped model and how to advance the practice “to the next level.” The cost to take the course is currently $19 through online training provider Udemy. That appears to be an introductory discount off the regular price of $70.
