How Can I FLIP Lessons using a Four-Step Plan? (FLIPPED)

Des Moines, IA US
March 24, 2017


This activity is open to DMU faculty only. Please register through Pulse. 


Lesson planning is a complex process that can take hours and hours of your time, but it doesn’t have to. Participate in this flipped workshop featuring a 20 Minute Mentor program by Mary Clement, Ed.D., who has mastered the lesson planning process and developed a four-step plan that simplifies how you plan and creates even stronger, more engaging lessons. We will work through her lesson planning process and discuss how it might work for you at DMU.

This workshop will be delivered in a flipped format. You are invited to participate by watching this linked 20 Minute Mentor workshop* PRIOR to attending. Please bring a lesson plan of your own to the workshop to use during the activity. There are resources linked to the video workshop you might also want to download for use. 

Workshop Objectives:

  • Prior: Ddefine the 4 steps in lesson planning after watching the Magna 20 Minute Mentor video.
  • Post-workshop: 
    • Apply the 4 step plan to their own lessons.
    • Organize their lessons to allow for interaction.
    • Develop a draft of a flipped lesson for their own use.
